ANDY ASKS FOR VALLEY'S AID 



National . . . 

PROVO, Utah(CPS)-Brigham Young University's academic vice-presi- 
dent, Robert Thomas, has demanded that teachers "tighten up" on co- 
eds wearing slacks in the classroom. 

"May we reiterate," said Thomas in a statement to campus faculty, 
"that slacks are not to be worn in regular classes, and we expect each 
teacher to make this clear to his students." 

Thomas said students had indicated to him "that many girls are now 
wearing slacks in regular classes." He said if the coed "feels totally rebel- 
lious about following standards which she has signed to uphold," that 
"we've made quite clear before anyone came here this fall, we would 
counsel with the student about why she is at BYU and if she felt strongly 
about it, we would suggest she transfer." 



BROCKPORT, N. Y.-The State University of New York is looking 
for students who want to earn college credit while preparing to teach 
mathematics and science as Peace Corps volunteers in Latin America. 

Peace Corps and college officials announced today that the unique 
Peace Corps/College Degree program at Brockport will be extended with 
the admission of a fifth group of candidates in June, 1971. 

The program is open to students who are in good standing at any ac- 
credited college or university and who will have completed their sopho- 
more or junior year by June, 1971. 

Applications must be made to the Peace Corps/College Degree Pro- 
gram; State University College at Brockport; Brockport, New York 14420 
by March 1 . 

Graduates receive either an A. B. or B. S. degree, secondary school 
teacher certification and an assignment overseas to a bi-national educa- 
tional team as a Peace Corps volunteer. While they are serving overseas 
volunteers may earn up to 12 hours of graduate credit. 



UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -Pennsylvania college students have launch- 
ed a special campaign to organize their own statewide lobby to work with 
the state government and the legislature on matters of higher education, 

Student leaders from every college, university and junior college in the 
in the state have been invited to attend an organizational convocation 
March 5, 6, and 7 at The Pennsylvania State University. 

Organizers of the convention also hope to have Governor Milton 
Shapp or one of his representatives, and key members of the Pennsylvania 
Legislature as guest speakers. 

The major areas of concern which will be discussed include the State's 
master plan for higher education and Shapp 's position on it; lobbying 
techniques and the effects of mass action; tuition and the financial situa- 
tion of higher education; voter registration and how to get the 18-year- 
old more involved; student representation on the Pennsylvania Board of 
Education; and the possibility of a Student Advisory Board for Gover- 
nor Shapp.

ANNVILLE, Pa. -The Thomas F. Staley Foundation of New Yorkhas 
Warded a grant of $1,000 to the college. 

The grant will underwrite the "Staley Distinguished Christian Scholar 
Lecture Program." scheduled at the College on March 9 and 10, and will 
c °ver transportation and fees for participants as well as local advertising 
ai1 d invitations. 

This lectureship was established in the fall of 1969 by Mr. and Mrs. 
Thomas F. Staley of Rye, New York in memory of their parents. 

The Thomas F. Staley Foundation is firmly persuaded that the mes- 
Sa ge of the Christian Gospel when proclaimed in its historic fullness is al- 
ways contemporary, relevant and meaningful to any generation. 

Social & Cultural • ♦ ♦ 

ANNVILLF, Pa. - Student Council, hoping to encourage the shar- 
es of ideas, is initiating what might be called a Student Lecture Series. 

is hoped that by this means of informal discussion students will prc- 
SC| U topics which they have specific interest in and have done research, 
Several students have already shown interest in such varied programs as 
P ar apsychology, yoga, and astrology. Anyone having a special interest

"Do Something!" Is this your moto? 
Well this is the moto of the Lebanon 
County Kidney Foundation, who at the 
present time is trying to raise funds to 
help Andrew Palkovick. 

Andrew Palkovick, eleven, is the son 
of John and Veronica Palkovic, R.D. 1, 
Fredericksburg, Pennsylvania, and upon 
meeting Andy one would not be aware 
of any problems. However, Andy's kid- 
neys are six times larger than normal and 
if Andy is to live he must get help. 

Andy has suffered from various ill- 
nesses thoughout his life, all of which 
have stemed from his defective kidneys. 
Last March his parents were faced with 
an important decision when Andy's con- 
dition got worse. There were three 
choices. One, to do nothing and Andy 
would die. Second, to use the kidney 
machine for life. In order for this to 
work Andy would have to receive treat- 
ments twice a week for the rest of his 
life and even then there would be no 
promise of any improvement. The third 
choice was a kidney transplant. It was 
this alternative that his parents have 
selected. His mother has received a var- 
iety of tests and she has, proven to be 
an acceptable doner. His father has under- 
gone tests, but no results are available 
at the present time. 

The decision that the Palkovick's 
made was not an easy one, but the pro- 
blem of raising the money for this oper- 
ation would be impossible for Mr. Palko-

vick despite the hours he works. Andy's 
father is an employee of Bethleham Steel 
Corp., where he works 40 hours a week 
He works another 40 for Dove's Garage 
and Esther's Dinner, where he washes 
dishes. 

Andy has several other health pro- 
blems that have come about as a result 
of his kidney problem. He has developed 



a heart murmur, high blood pressure, 
anemia, and rickets. The rickets have af- 
fected his left hip, but no operation can 
be performed as Andy would be im- 
mobilized for three months, which would 
not help his kidney problem. 

Andy is an eagar child and he is in 
high spirits. He has a keen mind and 
when he is able to get to school he out- 
shines the best students. However, Andy 
is not able to get to school often; most 
of the time he receives homebound in- 
struction from Mrs. Nancy Huff of Leb- 
anon. But one of his fondest wishes 
would be to be able to attend school 
with his friends. 

When not in school Andy's time is 
not very enjoyable, due to his inability 
to participate in many activities. Andy 
loves sports and this past fall followed 
professional football on television. His 
Favorite team is the Oakland Raiders. 

Some twenty organizations are help- 
ing to raise money for Andy from 
grade school students in Frederickburg 
to the Lebanon Police Department. These 
organizations have adopted the moto,- 
"Do Something."

RADIO COMMITTEE 



Poll Inconclusive; Few Respond 



by Jim Katzaman 

Several weeks ago the Radio Sta- 
tion Committee circulated a ques- 
tionnaire having reference to sub- 
jects that may affect the Final radio 
station policy as recommended by 
the committee. In all, 177 students 
replied with the following informa- 
tion: 

Eighty-two per cent replied that they 
did know about plans to organize a radio 
station set-up for broadcast orignating in 
the college center. Ninety per cent agreed 
that such a station was needed while 
97% said that they would listen to it. 
It might be worth noting that while 
90% of those replying said that such a 
station was needed, a considerably small- 
er amount, 51%, said they would be in- 
terested in participating in it. However, 
even though the precentage is relatively 
smaller, the actual number of persons in- 
terested is still large. It has been estimat- 
ed that the station at its initiation may 
provide the opportunity for 30^t0 stu- 
dents to participate in jobs ranging from 
station managers to disc jockies. If the 
results of the poll are representative of 
the entire student body there should be 
little problem in filling the vacancies. 

With regards to program content, 83% 
replied that they would favor musical 
broadcasts while 30'/? favored a mixture 
of both education and music. Ninety- 
four per cent said "Yes." there should 
be a news gathering organization. At 
the same time 62 r ; said "No." the pro- 
grams should not be related to the sur- 
rounding community. In this area the 
committee has many options and com- 
binations of ideas open for its considera- 
tion. The broadcasts could possibly in- 
clude scheduled programs of music, ed- 
ucation, and news local, national, and 
world. I here may also he remote facil- 
ities to cover campus activities not oc- 
curing at the College ( enter. 

The number of educational broad- 
casts will probably depend on I I ) how 
main faculty members will be interested 
in making use of the station for their 



own special fields of interests and (2) 
what kind of national educational broad- 
casts services are used on a subscription 
basis. 

In the student poll 73% answered 
saying "Yes." they owned FM radios. 
This fact is very important for the radio 
station as it is now being investigated by 
the committee may have a low-power, 
10 watt transmitter with a range of 
from one to two miles, broadcasting on 
the FM band. It has also been pointed 
out that if an outside antenna is used by 
the receiver, it might be able to pick 
up broadcasts from as far as four to 
six miles away. This kind of station has 
been suggested by the FCC and by the 
consulting engineer who will prepare the 
FCC application. 

Proposed Hours 

Eighty-six per cent of the students in 
the poll said they would like to have 
radio programs broadcast in the lounge 
of the student center while 85% stated 
they would also like to hear programs 
during meal time and coffee hour. These 
broadcasts will depend upon the hours 
that the station is in operation. One 
possible plan might be to broadcast from 
6-1 1 and on weekends during open house 
hours. In this way it would be possible 
to have programs during evening meal 



and coffee hour. 

By the time everything is set to go, 
the equipment tested and the people 
trained, the cost of the radio station 
is expected to run somewhere in the 
neighborhood of nine to ten thousand 
dollars. It is expected that some of the 
cost will be made up through the College 
Center Equipment Budget but the source 
for the rest of the money is still to be 
found. Since the station will be licensed 
as an educational station there will be no 
paid advertisements broadcast over it. 

These and other problems must be 
looked into and solved before the LVC 
radio station can swing into full opera- 
tion. The radio station committee is 
working hard at achieving its goal of 
getting the college a workable broad- 
cast media as soon as possible. There are 
still a number of matters to be investi- 
gated and discussed before the con 
mittee will be ready to submit its re- 
commendation to the faculty. Since fac- 
ulty approval is required, a final report 
cannot be bought before them until a 
comprehensive and workable document 
has been created. If a "go ahead" signal 
is given at that time, it is possible that 
LVC's own radio station may be in oper- 
ation by the start of the next school 
year. 



NIXON POSES DRAFT REFORM 



President Nixon has sent a President- 
al Message to Congress to request a two- 
year extension of induction authoriza- 
tion. It Congress approves the President's 
request to give him authority to end 
determents, the White House says that 
an Executive Order w ill be issued which 
ends the granting of II-S undergraduate 
deferments with the originally proposed 
effective date of April 23, 1970. This 
means that no new II-S deferments 
would be granted to young men who 
enter college in the future, and that the 
deferments granted to undergraduates 
who entered college after April 23. 1970 
would be cancelled. Students who were 
enrolled in lull-lime programs prior to 
April 23. 1470 would retain their eligi- 



bility for deferments. 

If undergraduate deferments are end- 
ed, the President proposes to phase out 
deferments for students in junior col- 
leges, apprentice programs and technical 
training schools. 

I'he President is also asking for an end 
in the special exemptions for divinity 
students. These would be effective on 
January 27, 1971. 

The uniform national call requested 
by the President on April 23. 1970 and 
repeated again this year, in effect means 
that all local boards will be reaching 
the same lottery number at approximate- 
ly the same time. No local board will 
be required or allowed to induct a man 
with a lottery number higher.

Student Priorities? 

Certain words are introduced into the vocabulary and are used re- 
peatedly almost to the point of meaninglessness. One such word that 
has gained prominance on the national level is priority. While LVC is 
not wrestling with decisions affecting War and Peace, the problem of 
priorities has arisen. The Student Council is looking for student guidance 
on the allocation of the Student Activity Fee. The debate thus far has 
been between concerts and other traditionally supported projects- 
such as this publication. 

A questionnaire has been drawn up by the Publications Committee to 
assess student opinion on both the newspaper and the yearbook in an 
attempt to discover what-if anything-rne students "really" want. This 
survey may be followed by a more comprehensive questionnaire pre- 
pared by Student Council on the whole range of student spending. 

Concerts? Dances? Lectures? The Council wants to know how you, 
the students, think your money should be spent. Student Council is at 
present suffering from the feeling of being cut-off from the rest of the 
student body. Last Wednesday an open meeting was held to try to get 
some idea of student opinion. It was not well attended. The recent 
Radio Station questionnaire received only 1 77 responses. It is hoped that 
the student body will consider the problems of the ordering of priorities 
for the budget and will make their opinions known to Council. 



INTIMATION 



by AL SCHMICK 



Once again we are again being treated 
to a thrilling "whodoneit" of American 
governmental mystery as news of an in- 
vasion of Laos is coming back to the U.S. 
from reports that have passed through 
Army Intelligence filters. It is wonder- 
ful to watch supersleuths Cooper and 
Fulbright squirm in the camera lights, 
in revelation of their total lack of 
political potency as another phase of 
"Vietnamization" is initiated by our 
air war to the North. We can certainly 
expect a thrilling conclusion to this Con- 
gressional soap opera when irate liberal 
Senators move to change the manner of 
our aggression to something palatable to 
their consciences and/or constituents- 

CampuA Scene 

Make your reservations early for one 
of the President's dinners for seniors. 
Be prepared for the reminder that those 
four wonderful years you've had here 
permit you, upon graduation, to con- 
tribute substantially to the fund for Ful- 
fillment at your Alma Mater's every re- 
quest. Ever wonder just what that fund 
fulfills? The usual unreliable source has 
suggested that it helps pay for the pars- 
ley that distinguishes the normal dining 
hall fare from the F. Palmer Sample 
Gourmet Extravaganza of the evening. 

They finally constructed a dining 
hall where even the shine of the grease 
on the food pales next to the gleam of 
chrome. Blinders for breakfast workers 
have been looked into, along with the 
possibility of a plug in the college cata- 
logue for a "small, church-related, liber- 
al arts, two dining hall campus." That at 
least should inspire all those nutrition- 
minded mommies and daddies to send 
Johnny and Susie for higher education 
in the Annvillian atmosphere. 

Is there -could there be a chance for 
a rewording of Institutional "Thou-Shalt- 
Not" Number 5? Tsk-tsk! What will the 
board of trustees think? After all, hasn't 
in loco parentis always been interpreted 
as in loco uteri"! 



like "over-the-table" financial aid to 
mercenaries, grants for community "self- 
defense" programs, and the like. 

Seriously, it is unfortunate that so 
much faith has been put in the very 
limited restrictions of congressional edict, 
such as Church -Cooper. Secretary of 
Defense Laird is so careful in his recent 
pious declarations which say that no 
ground combat troops are being used in 
Cambodia of Laos. He could be right 
(although one would tend to see that as 
unusual). But the real difficulty is Con- 
gressional power or the lack of it; second, 
this problem stems as much from legis- 
lative unwillingness to see South Vietnam 
determine its own future (with the 
North), as it does from Executive fiat. 

Quite apart(or is it)from the crisis of 
Congress which is developing once more, 
is the picture of North Vietnamese life 
that was shown on NBC's news maga- 
zine, First Tuesday, of February 3. 
Through the efforts of a Canadian jour- 
nalist, the American public got a chance 
to view the "other" Vietnam and at a 
time when people here are liable to see 
the peoples of this socialist state as spme- 
thing more than monsters intent on kill- 
in American servicemen. 

The narration deserves special men- 
tion because it stands apart from most 
radical polemics that extol party virtue 
and the conservative-to-moderate com- 
mentary that excoriates Communist lead- 
ership and programs when they do not 
achieve perfect success overnight. Any- 
one who watched this program could 
have made up his own mind without the 
benefits of the short analysis ala Tom 
Pettit that followed the taped presenta- 
tion. 

But what struck this writer was the 
look of health on the faces of the Viet- 
namese. There were no distended bell- 
ies, hollow checks, or sunken eyes. 
There were no mutilated limbs and 
flesh wounds. What one could see was 
a resolute people who have survived war 
for over 25 years, and who keep work- 
ing through the weariness. The South 
of Vietnam has nothing like the North 
and it is most unfortunate. 

Maybe Geneva can be saved!

Letters To The Editor 



To the Editor: 

As the largest antiwar organization 
in the country, the SMC is currently 
planning a major counter-offensive a- 
gainst the Nixon Administration's most 
recent ominous maneuvers in Southeast 
Asia. The "counter-offensive," which will 
be kicked off at a major National Stu- 
dent Antiwar Conference in Washington, 
D. C, February 19-21, will involve in- 
creased educational work, renewed local 
campus demonstrations, stepped up anti- 
draft activity, major national antiwar 
demonstrations, a national campaign for 
student rights, and much more. We think 
that this program and the upcoming 
conference, will be of particular interest 
to your readers and to many of you. 
We are writing to ask for your coopera- 
tion in getting information about these 
activities to your readers. 

April 2, 3, 4 Local meetings, rallies 
commemorating Martin Luther King. 

April 24 Peaceful, legal mass march 
and rally in Washington, D. C. and San 
Francisco, calling for the total and im- 
mediate withdrawl of all U. S. troops 
from Southeast Asia. 

May 5 Local rallies and demonstra- 
tions on the first "anniversity" of the 
murder of the students at Kent State 
and Jackson State. 

May 16 Demonstrations, "picnics," 
at military bases on Armed Forces Day, 
to show solidarity between the antiwar 
movement and the troops.

Moderation 



by Jeffrey Heller 

When a conservative speaks of campus 
unrest the first thing that comes to the 
minds of most people are police dogs, 
screaming sirens, and a college adminis- 
tration that refuses to believe that people 
under thirty have any ability to think. 
As a conservative t the fact that conserva- 
tism is immediately associated with the 
most undesirable aspects of all areas of 
living distresses me greatly. 

So far this school year the nation has 
been fortunate, as it should be, that 
there has not been any campus unrest. 
But let no one rest assured that this na- 
tion has seen the last of mindless, brutal, 
pointless exhibitions of violence between 
administrations and students, between 
law enforcers and law breakers, between 
generations and saddest of all between 
people. As a conservative k I can by no 
means condone the violence that has 
been used by great numbers of campus 
demonstrators to illustrate what they 



COMMENT 



by Carlo DeAugustine 



Recently there was a controversy a- 
cross the nation that people believed 
was of utmost importance. The subject 
was violence on T.V. Everyone got a- 
larmed at all the cartoons and movies 
that showed rough physical contact be- 
tween two live objects, mostly humans, 
sometimes animals. They showed con- 
cern over its effect on the little children 
of the nation. All the killing, fights, vio- 
lence, and bloodshed that our little fu- 
ture leaders were exposed to, they fel^ 
might warp their minds. Give me a break. 
Can you honestly believe that? I can't. 

The violence done in cartoons and 
movies is healthy. We are a race of peo- 
ple with tempers. This is inbred and 
nothing will stop this. So a child who is 
active watches a western and puts him- 
self in the heroes place and relives this 
adventure and comes out feeling pretty 
good. Or cartoons. They entertain. The 
child knows all this is fantasy. He real- 
izes this isn't life but take it away and 
you take away a part of childhood. The 
excitement and suspense of some of 
these shows gives the child a chance to 
escape his placid life and be an adven- 
turous daredevil. This isn't harmful. 

Of course anyone who is exposed to 
just this form of entertainment will nat- 
urally undergo an amount of brain rot, 
but the cartoons and movies teach the 
child things. They prepare him by show- 
ing him what it means to struggle. Let's 
face it; if all a person saw was Ozzie and 
Harriet or Captain Kangaroo ot even 
Sesame Street what happens when he 
starts facing life? What happens when he 
is taken from his nice-nice world and put 
into the army where he has to kill. But 
the army is another story isn't it? The 
army prepares you to face life. It doesn't 
leave scars or warp your personality to 
kill a man or burn down his village or 
shoot his wife and children. Bugs Bunny 
beating Elmer Fudd is much worse than 
shooting someone. Elmer Fudd always 
comes back. That guy doesn't. 

I may be a little narrow. I forgot how 
the army teaches you things to help 
your mind. The Lone Ranger was too 
violent a person for our children to see 
and listen to but in the marines, you ne- 
ver have to worry about violence be- 
cause of what it says in the Parris Island 
(USMC) yearbook. This following quote 
will keep you away from the horrors of 
Saturday morning cartoons. It fills your 
mind with peaceful thoughts that every 



man should have. 

"My rifle: This is my rifle. There are 
many like it but this one is mine, 
(teaches ownership). My rifle is my 
best friend. (Companionship). It is 
my life. I must master it as I master 
my life. (Dedication and ambition). 
My rifle, without me is useless, with- 
out my rifle I am useless. 
I must fire my rifle true. I must 
shoot straiehter than my enemy who 
is trying to kill me. I must shoot him 
before he shoots me. I will. . . 
My rifle and myself know that what 
counts in this war is not the rounds 
we fire, the noise of our burst, nor 
the smoke we make. We know that it 
is the hits that count. We will hit. . ." 
There's more explaining how I'm sup- 
posed to enter into an intimate brotherly 
relationship with my rifle, and while 
this is making me a man I know 111 be 
glad that I didn't watch all those evil car- 
toons and horrible westerns when I was 
a child. 



consider to be valid grievances. It goes 
without saying that there are always 
channels to use so as to seek redress of 
grievances. However, if one is going to 
address himself to the use of the proper 
channels so as to seek redress of griev- 
ances, one can by no means ignore those 
individuals at the other end of the 
channel, namely college administrators. 

As a conservative^ of course believe 
in respecting authority, yet I also believe 
that authorities have a responsibility, not 
only to those over whom they have 
authority, but also to themselves. As 
authorities they must, in a sense, seek to 
earn a certain degree of respect, for as 
Thomas Jefferson pointed out, a govern- 
ment must have the consent of those 
which it is to govern. This must not be, 
in this instance, taken in a literal sense to 
mean that students ought to control 
college administrations. Instead, it should 
only go to illustrate the point that a col- 
lege administration should use every 
means possible to attempt to obtain 
some degree of respect from its students 
by earnestly listening to the students' 
grievances. For by listening to their 
grievances college administrators will be 
moving to satisfy students and earn 
respect. This attempt to earn respect will 
of course lead to less campus unrest and 
better relations between students and 
college administrators. 

Some might say that advocating any- 
thing less than blind respect for author- 
ity is holding something less than a true 
conservative attitude toward campus un- 
rest. Well, for too long conservative 
principles have been set forth in a nega- 
tive, repressive, regressive fashion, and I 
think it's time that the way in which 
conservatism is expressed be altered. 
College authorities must remember that 
authority which has no respect is the 
same as no authority at all. True con- 
servatives must realize this and respond 
by calling for some degree of reform in 
college authority, for only such reform 
can bring about respect for authority 
and an end to campus unrest in this 
nation. While almost everyone desires the 
end effects of responsible authority, not 
everyone is willing to express favor for 
authority in general.

Menuhin Graces Artist Series 



by Cathy Mason 

In reading through the biographical 
material on Yehudi Menuhin, I became 
increasingly astonished that a musician 
f such stature as I saw growing before 
me should be coming to Hershey to 
participate in our Great Artist Series. 
He is without question the greatest sin- 
gle musical personality Lebanon Valley 
has espoused since I have been here, and 
probably one of the most distinguished 
in the college's history. 

Menuhin was a real child prodigy, 
and one of the finest in this century. He 
began taking violin lessons when he was 
four, and only three years later made 
his debut with the San Francisco Sym- 
phony playing a Mendelssohn violin con- 
certo. In this he exemplifies the prodigy's 
early grasp of music supposedly far be- 
yond him and also the amazingly rapid 
attainment of musical skills in the space 
of a mere three years. At ten years of 
age he broke into the New York musi- 
cal world with a performance at Carnegie 
Hall of the Beethoven violin concerto, 
and from there into the world at large. 
He not only possessed the technical 
skills to simply play this far from easy 
concerto, but somehow he was also able 
to project a full-fledged and completely 
satisfying conception of the music. 

By 1935 when he was 19, he had 
been heard and applauded around the 
world. He did not, like many prodigies, 
lose his novelty and subside into ob- 
scurity. He was not a freak but a real 
musician who successfully bridged the 
gap over into maturity. His musical per- 
sonality has continued to mature and he 
is even more esteemed now than he was 
then. 

What struck me was the consistency 
of certain trends in Menuhin's character 
throughout the years. From the begin- 
ning his parents made a point of sparing 
him from a too greuling concert sche- 
dule, attempting to give him as normal 
a childhood as possible, given his preco- 
ciousness. At different stages in his life— 



in the 30's, the 40's, and 60's-I found 
him saying much the same thing, insis- 
ting on normalcy, on living a full life be- 
yond the very limited one of the con- 
cert stage. Indeed in order to realize the 
full meaning of great music one must 
have a rich personality of one's own, 
not a stunted hybrid formed by rushing 
from concert to concert having only 
audiences, not people to relate to. As a 
result of this, though his concertizing is 
wide-spread, he scrupulously sets aside 
time to be with his family and relax. 




YEHUDI MENUHIN 

This interest in expanding himself 
has led him to enlarge his activities im- 
mensely, making him an institution in 
the music world. He is one of the most 
articulate of musicians having lectured 
and written articles, and has even found- 
ed a school which operates on his theory 
that children should be brought to mus- 
ic in such a way as to develop and en- 
rich them in other fields besides music. 
He has helped to found several music 
festivals, including the Bath Festival. 
He is constantly espousing new causes, 
one of his greatest interests being the 
presentation of unknown works to the 
public. He has rediscovered violin con- 
certos by Vivaldi, Mendelssohn, Schu- 
mann, and Mozart, and is constantly in 
touch with musicologists all over the 



Japanese Dancer 
Performs in Chapel 



Miss Sahomi Tachibana is a sensitive 
and stimulating artist who moves with 
the exquisite precision required in Japan- 
ese dance. She will appear on campus on 
February 16 as part of the Chapel-Con- 
vocation program. Her repertory ranges 
from the most ancient and classical 
dances of Japan, through humerous folk 
episodes. 

Sahomi Tachibana studied in Japan 
w ith members of the great dance fam- 
■ly, Tachibana, from which she acquired 
ne r professional name -one that is re-

as assistant director for "Madame But- 
terfly" and "La Traviata." She appeared 
at Expo '67 and on a national tour with 
the Folkloric Dancers of Japan. Miss 
Tachibana is also a proficient translator 
of the Japanese classics, having adapted 
"The Tale of Kasane" for the National 
Theatre of the Deaf, and assisted in the 
direction of this dance-drama. 

The Cleveland Plain Dealer described 
her concert as "an unusual program. . . 
gay. . . charming. . . dramatic." For 
her local program she will present several 
classical and folk dances of Japan. In 
folk songs she will accompany herself 
on the three-stringed samisen. 

Miss Tachibana 's visit here is part of a 
tour she is making to several campuses 
under the auspices of the Association of 
American Colleges' Arts Program, a non- 
profit concert and lecture agency now 
over thirty years old. It selects and sends 
on tour cultural events which are design- 
ed to meet some of the special needs of 
the college communities.

world. 

The breadth of his energy is express- 
ed in his unusually wide range of con- 
certizing. In a given two years he ap- 
peared in every continent on the globe, 
including Asia and Australia. He was al- 
most the first American musician to be- 
come world renowned. He is greatly 
beloved in England, where he was given 
an honorary knighthood by the Queen. 
He has formed ties with Oriental musi- 
cians, including Ravi Shankar (with whom 
he made a record), and has espoused 
Oriental music in the West -as well as 
being a Yoga enthusiast. He has been 
described as being more of a citizen 
of the world than any other prominent 
musician. 

Yet he continues to return to Amer- 
ica because he loves American audiences, 
especially university audiences, which is 
probably why after 50 years of contin- 
ual expansion as an artist and as a force 
in the musical world he comes to small 
colleges like ours to continue in the 
practice of his art.

THE ARTS IN REVIEW 



Truffaut Explores Humanness 



Engle Hall -8: 00 pm. 



CINEMA 

by Sue Ann Helm 

Based on an actual occurance, Fran- 
cois Truffaut's L'Enfant Sauvage traces 
in semi-documentory style the human- 
ization of a twelve year old, captured 
boy. The actual event took place in the 
late 1 8th century in Southeastern France 
where the child grew-up totally isolated 
from any human contact. After his en- 
trapment the child was placed in the 
custody of Dr. Jean Itard at the Paris 
Institute of the Deaf and Dumb. During 
his first few encounters with the boy, 
Dr. Itard becomes convinced that the 
child was intelligent and could, with pro- 
per instruction, be reinserted into society 
as a rational, productive member. Jean- 
Pierre Caigol does a very convincing and 
sensitive portrayal of the innocent wild 
boy; while his gentle instructor, Dr. 
Itard, is admirably portrayed by Fran- 
cois Truffaut making his acting debut. 

The film itself, done in black and 
white, seems to deliberately emphasize 
archaic techniques. Truffaut uses the iris 
fade in (a small illuminated circle gradual- 
ly rolling outwards revealing the screen's 
scenic panorama) and fade out both to 
develop atmosphere and provide transi- 
tion. This technique was very popular a- 
round WWI and during the early 20's; 
it was used extensively by David Wark 
Griffith in many of his films, most 
notable in The Birth of a Nation and 
Intolerance. The iris effect and other 
historic techniques give L'Enfant Sau- 
vage a very desirable atmosphere of age, 
primitiveness which helped set a realis- 
tic yet removed mood somewhat akin 
to rumaging in Grandma's attic. Truffaut 
creates a beautiful resurgence of the late 
18th century with real, unsentimental 
people. 

Transition thoughout the film is 
smooth and as far as one viewing has 
allowed inspection, the editing appears 
to be competent and fluid, no ineffec- 
tual deliberation. The longer scenes deal 
with Victor 's(the wild child's name)edu; 
eating and humanizing experience. Truf- 
fant labors, justifiably, over the gradual 
dawning of emotion in Victor and his 
struggle to comprehend his new environ- 
ment. The relationship between Itard! 
and Victor develops into a profoundly 
moving and unsentimental exploration 
of human understanding and compas- 
sion. Victor, sometimes defiant and some- 
times dependent, expresses many modes 
common to all children but with an im- 
portant difference-he discovers his e- 
motions and never performs to mani- 
pulate, but only responds with as hon- 
esty one cannot help but admire. The 
creature-like simplicity and honesty with 
which Victor asks for milk or bites a 
curious spectator would probably not 
have been credible without a "Wild 
Child" context. However, it is exactly 
this unusual child with an unusual his- 
tory which provides a successful vehicle 
for a film exploration of humaness— 
what it means to be civilized and a man. 

Francois Truffant's technique is pre- 



dictable; he is classified as a European 
New Wave Director. These men took 
their spiritual inpetus from Henri Lang- 
lois, director of the Paris Cinematheque. 
The New Wave Directors include Truf- 
faut, Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chalerol, 
Louis Malle, and Alain Resnais. These 
men were initially antiprofessional film- 
makers who learned to observe life by 
watching films. Truffaut } an able exam- 
ple of this film fever, as a boy secretly 
rendezvoused with movie houses. He has 
seen Orson Well's Citizen Kane 27 times. 
These directors in general never use a 
prepared script, were against academic 
values, and express themselves freely. 

Truffaut has done two autobiograph- 
ical films, The 400 Blows which deals 
with a delinquent child and Stolen Kisses 
about a man dishonorably discharged 
from the army. His first film, The 400 
Blows, was about a child because he, 
Truffaut, felt that he "didn't know 
much but was still close to his child- 
hood" so he felt he understood some- 
thing about children, (see N. Y. Times 
Magazine, June 15, 1969) In another 
quote taken from The N.Y. Times Maga- 
zine of June 15, 1969, Truffaut says 
"My characters are on the edge of so- 
ciety. I want them to testify to human 
fragility because I don't like toughness." 
Indeed, L'Enfant Sauvage fits the ambi- 
tion. It is another attempt to understand, 
or show an understanding of children 
as with Dr. Itard, and the film abounds 
with glimpses of realistic human fragility. 
The obvious quality that the film lacks 
remains toughness; and the end result is 
well worth the time and money spent in 
seeing it. 



RECORDS 



by Ben Neideigh 

Generally speaking, live-recorded al- 
bums are not the best albums from the 
musical aspect. Most of the live rock 
albums that have been released so far 
have been issued for one of two reasons: 
the group issuing the album has had a 
creative "lull" and needs something to 
fill an extended gap between releases, 
or the group, being already successful, 
wants to release an album with a maxi- 
mum of sales appeal and a minimum of 
production cost and time involved in 
recording. There are several prime ex- 
amples of each. In the first category we 
find, among others, the Jefferson Air- 
plane's Bless Its Pointed Little Head, 
Iron Butterfly's Live, The Association 
"Live," and, to a lesser extent, Live 
Dead by the Grateful Dead. In the second 
grouping we find the Doors' Absolutely 
Live, the Rolling Stones' two live discs 
(Got Live If You Want It and Get Yer 
Ya-Yas Out), Cream's Live, Grand Funk 
Railroad's Live Album, and even Golden 
Filth by the Fugs, along with other 
rip-offs too numerous to mention. 

The value of a live album is all too 
often that of the old-fashioned "great- 
est hits" albums. Most if not all of the 
songs are familiar to anyone who has 



heard any of the band in question's 
previous L.P. releases (notable here as 
exceptions are the MC5's Kick Out The 
Jams and Ginger Baker's Air Force, both 
of which were equally intolerable musi- 
cally). If one owns any of the previous 
releases, the only novelty left is the cap- 
turing of the group's "live sound," which 
may or may rTOt be better than that of a 
studio recording but most often is much 
worse. As a result, live albums sell no- 
toriously poorly. The Doors' live release 
and Grand Funk's similar discs have both 
been gold-record material, but these are 
exceptions to the rule (noting the cur- 
rent trend in heavy music, an album of a 
bengal tiger breaking wind into a micro- 
phone with drums behind the "melody 
line" adding rhythm would be a million- 
seller if the names Grand Funk Railroad, 
Led Zeppelin, or Ten Years After ap- 
peared on the album jacket). 

It is most unfortunate, therefore, that 
one of the best released of 1971 thus 
far is a live album. The album is Deliv- 
erin'. The band behind the album is 
Poco. The secret is its freshness. 

It's no secret that I really like Poco, 
but in this case, I will run the risk of 
seeming preferential. It is the most u- 
nique live album released in a very long 
time (if ever). It is Poco's third album, 
but unlike most live albums used as 
follow-ups for previous releases, it is a 
very fresh work. Seven of the twelve 
cuts on the album were not previously 
released by Poco. Of these, five of the 
songs ("I Guess You Made It," "C'mon," 
and "A Man Like Me" by rhythm gui- 
tarist Richie Furay; "Hear That Music" 
and "Hard Luck" by bassist Timothy B. 
Schmit) are totally new and never heard 
before on record. The other two ("A 
Child's Claim to Fame" and "Kind 
Woman," both by Furay) are old num- 
bers first recorded in 1967 by the Buffa- 
lo Springfield before that band (of which 
Furay was a co-founder) broke up. Poco 
has never before recorded them, however, 
and the arrangements are sufficiently 
changed to retain Poco's unique country-

APO greets the boys outside their school before begining their planned ac- 
tivities. The fraternity has been helping these Cleona youths since last year. 

APO Helps Retarded Boys 



by Rich Thompson 

A few miles from campus, a hand- 
ful of young boys and an LVC frater- 
nity on campus, has been working on 
a program for mentally retarded boys 
who are in a special class at Cleona 
Elementary School. 

Twice each week since last year 
some of the APO brothers have gone to 
the school to work with the ten boys in 
the class of fifteen. The boys range in 
are from six to fifteen. They are consid- 
ered trainable, but do not meet the re- 
quirements for admission to classes with 
educable children. 

In part of the program the boys are 
given a physical education class where 
they play catch, shoot baskets, run re- 
lay races and take part in other forms of 
physical activity. The APO brothers serve 
as leaders in a program teaching disci- 
pline and teamwork, as well as giving 
the boys a chance to work with their 
hands on handicraft projects. 

The brothers have been able to offer 
special assistance for activities outside 
the classroom. Last year eight brothers 
helped to chaperon the class to the 
Shrine circus at the Farm Show Arena 
in Harrisburg. In October the class visited 
a nearby farm. These activities are es- 
pecially meaningful for the boys in the 
class, some of whom are not often given 



opportunities to do things outside their 
normal routines. 

Another stage in the program was 
inaugarated last October 3, when five 
of the boys from the class were brought 
to the Lebanon Valley-Ursinus football 
game by some of the brothers. They 
watched the game and were treated to 
hot dogs and soft drinks after the half- 
time show. 

A special event for all concerned was 
the Christmas party that APO arranged 
for the class last December. One slight- 
ly shocked boy discovered Santa Claus 
(Harold Ulmer, newly elected President 
of APO) in the class bathroom. Santa 
presented the boys and girls in the class 
with gifts that had been very graciously 
supplied by Marty's Discount Toy land 
in Lebanon. 

The program has proceeded on a re- 
gular basis for over a year. Hundreds of 
man-hours were spent on the program 
last semester. The only major problem 
seems to be in scheduling the activities 
at times that are convenient for a num- 
ber of the APO brothers to participate. 
Weekend work offers additional possi- 
bilities. 

The brothers who have worked on 
the program enjoy it, and they hope to 
continue providing more activities for 
the boys.

Neidig Edits Lab Serie 

Howard A. Neidig, chairman of 



Dr. Howard A. Neidig, chairman of 
the department of chemistry, is current- 
ly serving as program editor for a series 
of laboratory experiments which, accord- 
ing to him, "will give greater flexibility 
to chemistry teachers at all levels". Called 
the Modular Laboratory Program in 
Chemistry, the series is planned to ulti- 
mately include nearly 400 experiments. 
An important feature of the series is that 
it is a cooperative venture, involving 
teachers of college chemistry from near- 
ly forty institutions in the United States, 
as well as several in Great Britain and 
Canada. 

"We are attempting," states Neidig, 
""to develop an extensive set of individual 
experiments each of which would be in- 
dependent of all other experiments in 
the series." The program materials will 
be available to teachers on standard 8V2 
by 1 1-inch paper for collation in standard 
looseleaf binders. In this way they may 
use the entire series or any parts of it to 
cover areas not included in their regular 
textbooks or to meet the special needs 
of their students. Neidig continues that 
"Each experiment is being written so that 
sufficient information will be available 
for the students to enable them to un- 
derstand the theoretical implications of 
the laboratory work, to do the experi- 
ment with a minimum of instructions 
from the laboratory instructor, and to 
make the calculations without addition- 
al instruction." The experiments include 
organic, inorganic, analytical, and phys- 
ical chemistry, biochemistry, first year 
chemistry, and instrumental analysis. 

At this time the series has 62 manu- 



scripts in production with commitments 
received for 66 more. Contributions to 
the series by LVC faculty have come 
from Neidig, Dr. James N. Spencer, Dr. 
Robert E. Griswold, Richard C. Bell, and 
Dr. Karl L. Lockwood. 

Neidig states that his job as program 
editor "is to review manuscripts with the 
assistance of others tomake selections 
for the series." The chief consultant in 
physical chemistry and first-year college 
chemistry has been Dr. Spencer. Neidig 
comments wryly on his role that "I con- 
cern myself with the experimental and 
with the format, and leave the theoret- 
ical and the grammar to Dr. Spencer. 
These guys who split infinitives drive 
me. nuts." 

Dr. Neidig is no stranger either to 
publishing or to education. He has pub- 
lished several dozen articles in various 
chemical journals, and is the architect 
of the well-received Chemical Bond ap- 
proach to the teaching of high school 
chemistry. In 1970 the Manufacturing 
Chemists Association selected him one 
of the four outstanding college chemis- 
try teachers in the United States and 
Canada. He has been on the faculty of 
Lebanon Valley, his alma mater, since 
1951. 

Dr. Neidig hopes to use the Modular 
Laboratory Program at Lebanon Valley 
next semester. Though market research 
prior to publication confirmed his beltdf 
that there was a need for a flexible new 
program in chemical education at large, 
he states that "We won't know until this 
spring how well we're doing."

RUDIAK 
EXHIBITS 



by Terri Carrilio 

Between Feb. 1 and Feb. 20, 1971 the 
photography of John Rudiak, a soph- 
omore chemistry major from Lebanon 
Valley College, will be on display in 
Carnegie Lounge. Both the subject matter 
and the technique of these pictures are 
excellent -good enough, in fact, to brave 
the wild Annville weather and the var- 
ious dangers of Carnegie itself. 

John's interest in Photography began 
three years ago, when he was a high 
school senior. He was not given any 
lessons or instructions, but taught himself 
how to take and develop pictures by 
reading magazines and technical materials. 
His most serious obstacle was money. 
John bought all his equipment, and has 
now amassed over $2000 worth of cam- 
eras and developing materials. Although 
the initial costs of the equipment seem 
prohibitive, John encourages all budding 
photographers with the assertion that 
the equipment more than pays for itself 
once the pictures become good enough to 
make money. There is, however, one 
other difficulty- once you get good 
enough to have $2000 worth of equip- 
ment, you seem to want more and more 
sophisticated (and I might add, more and 
more expensive) equipment. "It's like 
getting addicted or something, "according 
to John. 





JOHN RUDIAK 

John accumulated his stock of mat- 
erials, cameras and techniques slowly, 
starting with an old camera. He now 
has one of almost every basic type of 
camera, including an antique which is 
seventy years old. However, the cameras 
are only the means of gathering mat- 
erial-John does the creating in the dark 
room. In his own words, "I like to ex 
periment in the dark room." All the 
special effects which appear in his fin- 
ished pictures occur in the dark room. 
It is here that John manipulates his 
pictures into art. 

John's career as a professional is 
just beginning. He has worked one sum- 
mer on a newspaper and is presently 
helping with the yearbook pictures. He 
also plans to begin sending some of his 
pictures to magazines. After graduation, 
John intends to keep up with thephoto- 
graphy, and to make enough money to 
get some of the more sophisticated e- 
quipment. Right now he does not have 
the proper machines or chemicals for 
color pictures, although he may buy the 
equipment and let it pay for itself with 
money from the pictures. 

A photographer, of course, must take 
pictures of something, so I asked John 
what his favorite subjects were. His an- 
swer? " I like to shoot old people." And 
what does he do with these pictures of 
old people? "I like to distort them." 
John then described some of the tech- 
niques he used in the picture of an old 
woman in which she appears dead in 
contrast with the increasingly dark build- 
ing, (the picture can be found in the ex- 
hibit) Other favorite subjects are rock 
groups in concert ( which gives John the 
additional pleasure of meeting the group 
personally), and people in crowds. How- 
ever, to any wise young photographers 
who want to stand around taking pic- 
tures in crowds, John gives the warning 
that they may be pursued by unwilling 
subjects. 



I open this issue's installment on a 
serious note. In the last issue I o'erstepp- 
ed my bounds, so-to-speak, in jabbing 
at President Frederick P. Sample with- 
out adequate substantiation of my point. 
I do not wish any further friction be- 
tween myself(or any of my staff)and any 
other student, professor, or member of 
the administration of this college. My 
prime reference for the "comedy act" 
statement was the meeting with the stu- 
dents held in November. The President 
was, as usual, a bit cloudy and cliche- 
conscious in his phraseol ogy (recalling 
the "Capricious and Facetious act 

of "). To some students, and of 

course me as well, this statement, com- 
bined with other lingual slips and an 
occasional faux pas in presentation, 
seemed quite comical. I did not intend 
by my statement to necessarily reflect 
upon the personal philosophies of the 
man or the jurisdiction and power held 
by his office. So to you, President Sam- 
ple, and to those of you who read the 
article and were offended, I apologize by 
paraphrasing noted television host, Dick 
Cavett, with reference to his apology to 
Governor Lester Maddox for the alter- 
cation which occurred recently on his 
nationally televised show; If I called 
any of your actions comical which were 
not intended to be comical, I apologize. 

Having thus eaten more than my 
usual quota of crow, I will now turn to 
a topic of vital importance, namely 
rushing season. Ah, yes, now is the time 
when all socially acceptable freshman 
men and women vie for the chance to 
join the clique of their choice. In fact, 
preparations are under way at the various 
fraternities and sororities on campus to 
provide the new pledges with ample op- 
portunity to prove their worth and show 
beyond the shadow of a doubt that 
they do truly deserve membership in 
the loyal society. Rumor says copies of 
the social register and Who's Who in 
America have been seen circulating a- 
round Delphian floor over in Mary 
Green, Sinfonia has been collecting lace 
underwear and miniskirts for their in- 
doctrination(our grapevine suggests that 
the event will be dubbed either "Drag 
Nite" or "The Dance of the Sugar Plum 
Fairies." and not "Queen(s) For a Day," 
as had been supposed earlier), and the 
Knights have rented a white suit of ar- 
mor, an albino stallion, and twenty 
boxes of Ajax laundry detergent for 
their festive event, supposedly dubbed 
"Stronger Than Dirt Day." 

Long-time rivals Philo and Kalo have 
planned a cooperative ceremony to of- 
ficially welcome their pledges. Word of 
mouth indicates that this will be a 
game of bombardment between the two 
groups of pledges. Upon lining up in 
two opposing columns at a distance of 
forty paces, the throwing will begin. 
Instead of using volley balls as usual, 
however, the teams will use molotov 
cocktails and used rotary lawnmower 
blades. At the end of the contest, the 
survivors will literally be divided among 
the two frats. No site for the fun-filled 
event has yet been selected, although it 
has been rumored that it would be held 
in Philadelphia as part of the Connie 
Mack Stadium Demolition Program. 
Meanwhile, another group of feminine 
frosh pledges will be participating in a 
new rock musical, "Cliopatra." written 
by elder members of that sorority and 
based on the life of the snake-bitten 
empress. The pledges failed to be in- 
formed of the expected bust by the Ann- 
ville Vice Squad during the second-act 
nude scene, however. Clio officers, who 
will phone in the complaint under as- 
sumed names, have stated that the first 
ten pledges to post bail will be ac- 
cepted. No pasties or G-strings will be

permitted. 

The pledges from A.P.O. and Gamma 
Sig will spend their initiation date in ser- 
vice at the Lebanon Memorial Hospital 
maternity ward, The A.P.O. pledges will 
spend the day delivering babies, while 
their Gamma Sig counterparts comfort 
the anticipatory fathers in the waiting 
room(using arty means available to ac- 
complish their task, of course.) 




All of these spectacular events will be 
overshadowed by the establishment of 
the College's newest fraternity. The new 
frat, fondly called "Ole Pigma Sti" by 
its rivals, is actually the C.A.A., or 
more formally, the Collegiate Aryans of 
America. All new members will be in- 
doctrinated over an extended period of 
time. The first night, all members will 
have their hair dyed platinum blond and 
will have special sky-blue contact lenses 
inserted into their eyes. These lenses will 
filter out colors and shadings, and al- 
low the wearers to view all situations in 
their true black and white. The second 
night, all prospective, Aryans will be re- 
quired to sleep with cuddly inflatable 
manequins styled after Spiro T. Agnew 
and Madeline Murray O'Hare. 

The third night, all prospective Ar- 
yans will move to the frat's special club 
house, located deep in the woods above 
Mt. Gretna. Laughingly dubbed "Dachau 
West" by the frat leaders, the house 
features rooms partitioned like jail cells, 
outdoor plumbing only(except for the 
twenty showers located in the garage), 
and a war-surplus machine'gun mounted 
on the roof. It is surrounded by two

Committees Report 



STUDENT AFFAIRS 



by Martin Hauserman 

On January 18th the Student Affairs 
Committee met with the following mem- 
bers present: Captain Cooper, chairman, 
Mrs. Lewin, Mr. Weast, Marty Hauser- 
man, Mike Morrison, and Dave Snyder. 

No new business was introduced by 
the chairman, but he asked the com- 
mittee to think about several topics 
currently under discussion on campus, 
including disciplinary matters which do 
not fall under the jurisdiction of student 
government. Drug abuse was given as an 
example. It was suggested that the Deans 
might be able to help, as they are in a 
position to counsel students. Whether 
the S.A.C. should play a judicial role 
in such cases or policy making or policy 
recommending roles were debated, a con- 
sensus felt that it would best serve as a 
policy recommendation body, protect- 
ing student rights, and improving com- 
munications on campus. 

A major portion of the meeting was 
spent discussing the problem of "in loco 
parentis" regarding intervisitation and 
drinking. Captain Cooper talked about 
security j and privacy in considering the 
construction of the proposed women's 
dormitory. All agreed that privacy was a 
major stumbling block to adoption of 
more liberal intervisitation hours. A- 
nother suggestion indicated that some of 
the larger dorms such as Funkhouser 
could be open to men and women, with 
preference for occupancy given to upper 
classmen. 

The meeting was adjourned with in- 
structions to the committee members 
to give these preceding matters thought 
before the next session. 



BUILDING 

by Diane Wilkin s 

The Building Committee met on Feb- 
urary 2 first to discuss the purchase of 
wooden chairs for the West(new)dining 
hall(the plastic ones will be returned to 
the gym)and then to take, a tour of the 
College Center with Mr. Smith, the Di- 
rector of the Center. 

According to the contractor, con- 
struction is ahead of schedule and he 
has optimistically predicted March as the 
date for completion. Mr. Smith has sug- 
gested that the building may be used 
for special events such as the Arts Fes- 
tival, but will not be in full operation 
until September. 

In touring the building the com- 
mittee remarked on the smallness of the 
theatre(seats 250) and were reminded 
'hat it is intended as a theatre not as an 
auditorium. Suggestions for the stage, 
ugh ling, and acoustical arrangements were 
obtained from Wig and Buckle and from 
fhose faculty members who have been 
Evolved in stage productions. 

The snack bar will be furnished with 
booths as well as tables and is located 
next to the TV lounge. This room which 
Matures a wall-mounted television set 
^ be comfortably and informally fur- 
nished. The game room which is larger 
u}an expected will include, among other 

■tongs, pool tables, card tables, and dart 
alleys. 

Mr. Smith has stressed that as of yet 
n ° rules have been established for the 



operation of the building. Anyone with 
questions or ideas about the College Cen- 
ter "should get in contact with any mem- 
ber of the Building Committee or La Vie. 



CHAPEL 

by John Lynch 

During the past few months there 
has been much speculation and dis- 
cussion as, to how attendance for the 
chapel-convocation program is to be tak- 
en during the second semester. President 
Sample, at the first convocation of the 
new semester again placed students on 
their honor to attend the required num- 
ber of chapel-convocation programs for 
an indefinite time period. He did not 
say that the "honor" system is to last 
for the entire semester, but for "at least 
the first few weeks." 

Why the President emphasized that 
the honor system might be for only a 
limited time period might partially be 
answered by pointing out that there will 
soon be a meeting of the Chapel-Con- 
vocation Policy Committee. The com- 
mittee has been specially called to meet 
on Tuesday, February 16. This commit- 
tee is composed of the Chapel Convocax 
tion Program Committee plus several 
members of the Board of Trustees. It is 
this policy committee that makes any 
recommendations of policy changes to 
the Board of Trustees. The attendance 
taking policy of the chapel-convocation 
program will possibly be affected by 
whatever action the committee takes. 

If you have any suggestions or opin- 
ions that you would like to be brought 
out at this important meeting, please 
contact your student representatives, 
Jane Snyder, Dave Shellenberger, and 
John Lynch.

barbed-wired fences and the gate is guard 
ed by two rabid German Shepard dogs. 
Two days will be spent there, and the 
time will be spent memorizing the U.S 
Marine Corps. Handbook and offering 
hourly dagger salutes to a nude marble 
statue of Richard M. Nixon. On the 
fifth night, a patrol will search out and 
capture a couple caught while parking 
at the Lebanon Pumping Station. They 
will be, dragged back to the woods, and 
once safely held captive in the building, 
will be disguised as Kate Millet and Tru- 
man Capote and will be tortured with 
hot pokers and knives as an act of sym- 
bolic patriotism. The newly-enrolled Ar- 
yans will then return to campus to serve 
as campus guards as a part of the group's 
service to the college. They will hold 
trials and dole out suitable corporal 
punishment for each crime against the 
school. 

Included in their plans for L.V.C. 
are mandatory R.O.T.C. study and re- 
moval(or purging, as they jokingly call 
it)of minority students. Liberal students 
will have the names of their crimes 
carved into their backs with a No. two 
soft-lead pencil; Communist students 
will be burned in vats of boiling oil in 
the cafeteria 

Oh, my God, thank heaven I woke 
up. I simply shouldn't cut chickens' 
heads off before I go to bed. Happy 
Second Semester!

rock identity. These seven .songs are all 
quite good. The three new Furay num- 
bers are all solid rockers, fast and peppy. 
Schmit's two numbers are more countri- 
fied, lazy, and casual. Of the old Furay 
numbers, "Kind Woman" is a beautiful, 
country-styled rock ballad, whereas "A 
Child's Claim To Fame" is an old- 
fashioned, good-time country shuffle- 
step number, friendly but not preten- 
tious or imitative. 

The other five cuts on the album 
were presented on the two previous Poco 
albums, but even these are distinctive. 
Most exemplary of these is "You'd 
Better Think Twice," which is performed 
acoustically, rather than with amplified 
instruments as it was recorded for the 
second album, on which it first ap- 
peared. It is still as clearly phrased as the 
original and contains considerably more 
solo work as well. 

The usual crowd noises appear on 
this, as on most live albums, but unlike 
most such albums, the audience really 
becomes involved with every second of 
the concert. Poco displays amazing aud- 
ience contact throughout the album, 
proving its reputation as a crowd-pleaser 
with few equals among bands of its type. 
It is interesting to note that of all of the 
bands playing country-rock (including 
Dillard and Clarke, The Flying Burrito 
Bros., The Band, The Byrds, The Grate- 
ful Dead, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and 
Young), Poco is both the most success- 
ful on stage and the least successful in 
album sales. They deserve better. 

It is a tribute to both Poco and the 
sound engineers from Epic Records that 
they have been the first to combine the 
atmosphere of a live performance with a 
fresh musical package, free of merciless 
repetition. Deliverin' (Epic KE30209) 
by Poco is easily the best live rock album 
currently on the market. It is a worthy 
addition to any collection. 



Ed Thomas 
Drafted by 
NY Giants 



by Tom Corbett 

On Friday, January 29th, Ed Thomas, 
senior defensive end and co-captain of 
the 1970 football team was drafted by 
the New York Giants of the National 
Football Conference. 

Ed, a three sport man (lacrosse, 
wrestling, and football), was picked by 
the Giants in the 9th round. It appears 
that the Giants are thinking of playing 
Thomas as a linebacker instead of a 
defensive end. Thomas cannot sign a pro 
contract with New York until after la- 
crosse season is over because this would 
affect his eligibility. After signing Ed 
will report to summer camp in July in 
hopes of winning berth on the Giant 
squad. 

Thomas caught the interest of many 
pro teams including the Cowboys, Giants, 
Raiders, and Cardinals. Ed who lives in 
Cresskill, N.J. will be playing for his fav- 
orite team if he makes it with the Giants. 

I'm sure that the student body, 
faculty, and administration wish Ed all 
the he needs to make the Giants.

Valley Holds 10-5 Record 



by Tom Corbett 

The Lebanon Valley cagers returned 
to action Thursday February 4 against 
Johns Hopkins. The Valley coming off 
a 3-week rest was cold and rusty. This 
may be a reason for their loss to Hop- 
kins 70-67. In that game, which might 
have been the worst game of the season, 
the Valley led at halftime but by the 
final whistle found themselves on the 
short end of the score. George Petrie led 
the Valley scorers with 21 points while 
sophomore Steve Mellini had 16 points 
and 17 rebounds. 

Saturday night saw the Valley lose 
another close and exciting game to 
Muhlenburg. The score was tied at half- 
time and at the end of regulation play. 
The score then was 81-81. This necessi-

tated an overtime period in which Muh- 
lenburg scored 17 points while the 
Dutchmen scored only 10. The final 
score was 98-91. 

In marked contrast to Thursday 
night's game the Valley probably 
played one of its best games of the 
season. Unfortunately Muhlenburg also 
played its best game. The Dutchmen put 
four men in double figures: Donnie 
Johnson led the Valley scoring with 32 
points while grabbing 17 rebounds. Kris 
Linde scored 17 points and 10 rebounds. 
Chip Etter in making 11 points made 
7-7 from the foul line. Eddie Ianna- 
rella had 10 points and 9 assists. 

The Valley presently sports a log of 
10-5 with the remainder of their games 
against the top teams of both con- 
ferences. 

Valley Squad 
Logs 4-2-2 

Tuesday February 4 th the Valley 
Matmen travelled to Johns Hopkins for 
the first meet of second semester. At the 
end of the meet the team, coached by 
Jerry Petrofes, had defeated Hopkins by 
a score of 22-14. 

Winning by decision in this meet were 
Guy Lesser (142) by a score of 7-4, 
Mike Probus (167) scoring 12-8, Tom 
Koons (177) by a score of 9-2, and Ed 
Thomas (Hwt.) 7-2. It should be noted 
that Thomas was wrestling with an injury 
sustained during exams in which he cut 
lis wrist requiring 32 stitches. He was 
not expected to wrestle this soon. 

Steve Grove (118) won by a for- 
feit and Jay Catherman (190) won by a 
fall. 

Later in the week the Dutchmen 
wrestlers travelled to Dickinson for a 
match on Saturday the 6 th. Lebanon 
Valley was tied this time by a 
score of 20-20. The Dutchmen obtained 
all of their points by registering pins. 
Falls were recorded by Steve Grove (118), 
Mike Probus (167), Tom Koons (177), 
and Ed Thomas (Hwt.). 

With 8 matches already over the 
Valley has a log of 4-2-2. After losing 
the first two matches the wrestlers have 
not lost in six starts, registering wins over 
Hopkins, Swarthmore, Moravian, and P. 
M.C. They have tied Delaware Valley and 
Dickinson. 

One sad note to mention is that 
Rick Phillips, sophomore at 118 or 123, 
who was undefeated this year has de- 
cided not to return to school for this 
semester. This is a definite loss to the 
team that coach Petrofes will have to 
fill.

WASHINGTON, D. C.(C?S)-Environmental Action has announced 
a national contest for armchair activists interested in tactics which can 
be used by "concerned citizens to stop corporations or institutions 
from polluting, exploiting or otherwise threatening the survival of the 
earth and its inhabitants." 

Labeled the first "Ecotage Contest," a combination of ecology and 
sabotage, its name is defined as the "branch of tactical biology that deals 
with the relationship between living organisms and their technology." 

Winners will be announced the latter part of Earth Week(the third 
week of April). The first place winner will be flown to Washington, D.C. 
to receive the "Golden Fox" trophy. It is given in honor of "the Fox" 
of Kane County Illinois, whose harrassment of industrial polluters in- 
cluded the placing of a 60-foot sign on a freeway bridge announcing, 
"We are involved— in killing Lake Michigan, signed U.S. Steel," and 
dumping industrial effluent on the white office rug of a large corpora- 
tion's vice-president. 

The rules of the contest include: entries must be received no later 
than April 20, 1971. More than one person may work on an entry, but 
only one representative can receive the award. The length should be limit- 
ed to 100 pages. 

Entries should be sent to Ecotage, Environmental Action, Room 731, 
1346 Connecticut Avenue, N.W., Washington, D. C. 20036. 



WASHINGTON, D. C.(CPS)-Fifteen members of the Philadelphia 
Resistance barricaded themselves inside the South Vietnamese Embassy 
for more than an hour in a non-violent protest of the U.S.-South 
Vietnamese invasion of Laos. 

The group entered the embassy gates as employees were arriving for 
work, and chained and padlocked the gate and doors behind them. De- 
spite the fact that the night before there had been a demonstration out- 
side the embassy by the D. C. Gay Liberation Front, security police, 
were not guarding the building that morning. 

Inside the embassy the resisters handed out a prepared statement to 
embassy employees calling the Thieu-Ky-Khiem regime a "puppet regime, 
not an independent ally, a U.S.-manufactured government organized to 
justify and continue the killings in the face of opposition here and in 
Vietnam." The capital's Executive Protection Service, which patrols the 
embassy and White House area, arrived almost immediately, but the ar- 
rest of the protesters was delayed while the barricade was being broken. 
The Philadelphia Fifteen were charged with trespass and freed on bail. 



PAINTSVILLE, KEN.(CPS/FPS)-Fifteen girls in Paintsville, Ken- 
tucky, will have to submit to paddlings before they can re-enter school, 
This punishment was proclaimed after they wore pantsuits to school 
last January 27 during near-zero weather. 

The school had already refused to allow girls to wear pants on cold 
days, after being requested earilier to change the policy. So, the principal 
s aid, the girls were guilty of a "deliberate rules violation." He then told 
them to go home and not to return until they were willing to be paddled.

CAPITALISTS EYE MARIJUANA MARKET 



CPS-Marijuana is now as American as 
Spiro Agnew's daughter-or so say for- 
ward thinking executives of U.S. tobacco 
firms who have been covertly eyeing the 
underground market in "grass", officially 
valued at better than a billion dollars a 
year. 

The real figure, say Western entre- 
preneurs, is nearer three times that sum, 
and now that the possibilities of legal 
manufacture are being discussed in the 
boardrooms, bootleg suppliers are organ- 
izing to safeguard their interests. 

Long before New Year's Day, when 
the government shut down a $ 250 mil- 
lion advertising industry by banning cig- 
arette commercials on television, the to- 
bacco men had been busy on contingency 
planning-one firm is allegedly running a 
furtive sale test scheme in Hawaii. At the 
start the big manufacturers would mar- 
ket their joints at about 25 cents each, 
well under current black market prices. 

Business sources predict the end of 
the marijuana ban will follow the close 
of the Nixon era, for the soundly all- 
American reason that the swollen costs 
of the "new prohibition" exceed any 
good it may do. Enforcement costs in 
California alone are now running at $ 32 
million a' year and courts are clogged 
with untried cases. Already 23 states 
have eased penalties, with more to follow. 

Former U.S. Attorney John Kaplan, 
a Stanford Unifersity Law Professor, and 
an authority on the subject, said this 
week that marijuana "could and should" 



be legalized. He inclines to a government 
monopoly which would rule out adver- 
tising. Packets of the week, graded by 
strength and heavily taxed, might be sold 
in government-licensed shops. Mr. Kap- 
lan believes this open system would dis- 
courage use, particularly by teen-agers. 
Revenue would help to step up control 
of "hard" drugs. 




But the underground does not mean 
to yield its rich, quasi-sacred grass mar- 
ket to the big-money men. "It's the eco- 
nomic basis of the counter-culture," says 
Blair Newman, a prominent San Fransis- 
co pot advocate, "We have to keep it out 
of the hands of the tobacco tycoons." 

Believing legislation will come "with- 
in three years," Newman and his friends 
have formed a "philanthropic", non-pro- 



fit organization called Amorphia, to 
stake their claim. 

More confident still is a San Francis- 
co consortium of pot dealers known col- 
lectively as Felix the Cat. "Marijuana is 
legal," they say in publicity for their bold 
new venture-a packaged filter-tipped 
brand of pot cigarettes named Grassmas- 
ters. 

One "Mr. Felix" spokesman for the 
group told a radio station interviewer 
the 320 dealers in the Bay area are hand- 
ling his first consignment of 5,000 car- 
tons. A packet of 18 joints now sells at 
$ 7.50, but he hopes to pass on savings 
to the smoker as business grows. By ear- 
ly spring they plan to have an automa- 
ted rolling factory in Mexico, and two 
more, underground, in San Francisco and 
Berkeley, with distribution centers from 
coast to coast. 

Wouldn't the police object? "Oh, 
sure. But the government just isn't willing 
to push this thing. It's like the last days 
of prohibition when beer trucks drove 
openly around. I hope to have some 
trucks painted with our Felix symbol 
soon." 

How was business? 

"We turn about a ton of grass a month 
in the San Francisco area. That's worth 
$25,000." 

Mr. Felix claims to have a bail fund 
reserve of $ 125,000 and is prepared for 
two Supreme Court appeals in the next 
couple of years. "Then well be out in 
the clear."

Students, Faculty Pass Proposals 



by Richard Thompson 

The Board of Trustees will meet on 
Saturday, February 27, to consider two 
proposed changes in student government 
recently approved by both the student 
body and the faculty. 

The most debated change was a pro- 
posed replacement for institutional rule 
five concerning when persons of the op- 
posite sex may visit a student's dormi- 
tory room. 

The proposal approved provides for 
periods of intervisitation as legislated by 
the Student Senate within clearly de- 
fined time limitations. Included are pro- 
visions for weekday and weekend hours 
and for other periods of intervisitation 
associated with special occasions. 

The proposal was approved by the 
student body on February 8, by a vote 
of 481 to 87. All full-time students 
were eligible to vote. The faculty ap- 
proved the proposal by a wide margin 
in a special meeting February 11, re- 
versing a narrow defeat for the proposal 
in a vote taken on February 8. 

President Sample called the second 
meeting after the Student Government 
Executive Committee, which had drawn 
up the recommended changes, had ex- 
pressed the desire to meet with the 
faculty to discuss the reasons for the 
original negative vote. Students Don 
Samples, John Ulrich, and Bob Weller 
attended the meeting to explain how 
the proposal would be implemented and 
clear up doubts the faculty had con- 
cerning its merits and enforcement. 

After additional discussion and a mo- 
tion to reconsider the original vote, the 
proposal carried. 

Students and faculty who supported 
the recommended changes generally felt 
that the Executive Committee had stud- 
ied the situation carefully and had ex- 
ercised good judgment in its presenta- 
tion. They believed that the new rule 
was a good one that would clear up con- 
fusion surrounding the old one. Oppo- 
nents of the change expressed concern 
for the privacy and rights of individual 
students. 

Said one faculty member opposed to 



the recommended changes, "Students 
should handle the problems they have 
before they take on any more." Noting 
that some students report that they can- 
not study in their dorms as they are now 
he added, "Dorms are not supposed to 
be a place for socializing." 

However, not a few faculty on both 
sides of this issue have had serious reser- 
vations about this proposal and student 
government on the Lebanon Valley cam- 
pus. Questions were raised about the en- 
forcement of the new proposal, and al- 
so about enforcement of existing rules. 

Some, believing that the future of 
student government is riding on this is- 
sue, have emphasized that the students 
must take the enforcement problem ser- 
iously and must take on the necessary 
responsibilities. Even faculty who fav- 
ored the proposal had words of caution 
concerning student government: "The 
student government is not working well 
for lack of enforcement." said one, add- 
ing that if the few rules we have are not 
enforced, "You have no government and 
you have chaos." 

Dr. Love believes that the Senate has 
not shown that it can take on the nec- 



essary responsibilities of legislation and 
enforcement. Other faculty and students 
agree. She adds, "I hope that the Sen- 
ate will do a good job on this. I think 
it is vital to the future of student gov- 
ernment on campus. I feel that the Sen- 
ate should undertake an evaluative study 
of itself, its purposes and its functions. 
How effective is it? 

"Students and some faculty have 
been thinking of (a crisis in Morality) in 
terms of sexual morality." using a 
broader definition of "morality." she 
questions the morality of those who fail 
to live up to their word, and questions 
whether those students in positions of 
responsibility in student government are 
living up to their oaths of office and 
their pledges to enforce the rules. 

Some of these comments are echoed 
by Don Samples, who feels that the "re- 
sponsibility is on the students to enforce 
these rules." Otherwise, he sees "student 
government going down the drain. Here 
is a chartce for the students to show re- 
sponsibility in government." 

The proposed replacement for the

ENFORCEMENT 

There has been increasing debate concerning the workability of stu- 
dent government and especially about the responsibilities which ac- 
company such a system-namely enforcement. In the consideration of 
rule number five, enforcement was chosen as the main topic for debate- 
despite the underlying question of student morality. Student government 
is seen a sham because the rules are not enforced. The question each 
time a rule comes up for discussion seems to be: Why should we admend 
the rules when no one follows the ones we have? 

This brings us to the question of why the present rules are not being 
enforced. Then we are engaged in that great game of buck-passing. The 
administration and faculty blame the Senate; the Senate claims they are 
the legislative and judicial branch, but enforcement belongs to the 
counselors. The counselors say that it is up to the whole student body 
to enforce the rules. And so on. Why then, don't the students, if not 
enforce the rules, at least follow them? 

In our community as in the society in general, when a majority 
evades the rules, perhaps it is the rules rather than the enforcement 
that should be questioned. Rules and the penalties for not comforming 
are set up with the idea that the offenders will be few and that the 
majority will comply. Elementary sociology indicates that rules do not 
change as quickly as their constituency and when such a lag occurs; 
the rules will be broken. No matter how much student participation 
is involved in the establishment of rules, it is still one group of people- 
more conservative -legislating for another entirely different group of 
people. 

But wait, some will say, the students themselves voted for some of 
these rules. Take for instance the change in rule number five. Provided 
it is approved by the Trustees, intervisitation periods will be extended. 
The only problem is that the students were asked to vote for this plan 
or retain the old. While the proposed change is an improvement, it 
still, by institutional policy, places a limit on the Senate. The plan for 
24 hour intervisitation or allowing the Senate to declare any hours it 
so desires were not proposed because of the certainty that they would 
be rejected by the faculty, administration, and trustees. 

Perhaps the lack of compliance to the rules is not due to student 
government but to the rules themselves. Maybe the college should retire 
from the area of social regulations and concentrate its energies on im- 
proving our academic program. 



COMMENT 



by Carlo DeAugustine 



Eighteen year olds now have the 
right to vote in national elections. This is 
definitely a good idea and is desparately 
needed. I'm sure you know some people 
over 21 shouldn't vote and neither should 
some people under 21. One type of these 
persons is the person who says, "I think 
eighteen year olds should vote because 
they can go to war and fight and die." 
This statement reeks of absurdity and il- 
logical thinking. The two ideas are total- 
ly unrelated. (War is totally unrelated to 
anything.) Just because you believe a lot 
of politicians (a job noted for its honesty 
and sincerity) who declare an enemy 
and make you the one to kill or be killed 
doesn't mean you have brains enough to 
vote. If anything, it means quite the op- 
posite. Anyone with intelligence can see 
that ever since history has been recorded 
wars have been fought and have settled 
absolutely nothing. The only result from 
war is that countries get together to di- 




LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 1 



To Mr. Gargiulo; Men of Sinfonia: 

This misunderstanding of my intent 
in my column of 2/1 2 is most regrettable. 
It seems most unusual to me that of all 
of the groups that I parodied in my 
latest Fyresyde Chat, only yours chose 
to protest. I have discussed the article 
with my Editor-in-Chief, and with mem- 
bers of my staff as well as unbiased out- 
side people, and the response to my ref- 
erence to your organization was over- 
whelmingly in favor of my position, 
which is simply that the intent of the 
article was to "kid," to joke, as it were, 
and not to insult or defame anyone. 

Have you taken into consideration 
the fact that many organizations, not 
solely yours, were chided in the column? 
Have you considered the fact that a "drag 
nite" was used by the Freshman Orien- 
tation Board as part of their orientation 
program this fall? Obviously I left a few 
humorous implications in my article, 
but the fact remains that I did nowhere 
in my article refer to members of Sin- 
fonia as queers, faggots, or any other 
such name. You are the ones saying that 
you have been branded as homosexuals. 
I simply referred to your initiation pro- 
gram. 

The objective of my column is hu- 
mor. I will use any or all avenues for the 
achievement of my purpose. I fully real- 
ize that my writing cannot please every- 
one, but I do make an effort to enter- 
tain, rather than alienate, my readers. I 
have written nothing this year of which 
I am ashamed, and I see no reason why 
you and your organization cannot con- 
sent to being the brunt of a little well- 
meaning humor. While you were con- 
demning me as thinking that I am "great," 
you so nicely set yourself up on a ped- 
estal of untouchability that my painless 
comments were regarded as gross trans- 
gressions. What it boils down to is: Can 
you take a joke? 

I regret that this situation has arisen, 
but I' advise you to consider the intent, 
and the other groups who were also chid- 
ed, and ask yourselves whether you are 
too exalted to be treated similarly. Any 
more correspondence can be aired pub- 
lically by sending it to the Editor, La Vie 



Collegienne, 2nd Floor Carnegie. Feel 
free to write if you wish. After all, if you 
wish to present this to the campus for 
their judgement, what better way than 
that? All letters will be treated impartial- 

I'm sorry you feel the way about this 
that you do, but I ask again, Can you 
take a joke? 

Benjamin Neideigh 
Feature Editor 
La Vie Collegienne 



To Mr. Neideigh: 

I'm sure you will be happy to hear 
that I have a sense of humor and be- 
lieve it or not I can take a joke. Now 
that we've gotten that settled let's get 
down to business. Inspite of the fact 
that you did speak to so called 'unbiased' 
people about your article how much do 
you really know about Sinfonia or any 
of the other fraternities for that matter. 
I suspect it is very little. You say you 
spoke with unbiased people but being a 
writer for a newspaper you must surely 
realise no one is unbiased. You say the 
people you talk to were very much in 
favor of your position and I don't doubt 
it because unfortunately there is a very 
poor joke going around campus that all 
music majors whether they be Sinfonians 
or not are fairies, and to tell you the 
truth I don't doubt th'at you were sway- 
ed by this general idea about Music ma- 
jors which led to your comment about 
lace mini-skirts. Just because you didn't 
use the word faggot or queer doesn't 
mean you didn't imply it in your article. 

You say that your column is suppos- 
ed to portray humor but maybe you've 
forgotten that humor is based on fact. 
The reason Bill Cosby was such a funny 
man was because he spoke about his 
life as a child. Why? Because he had the 
facts to back up what he said and he 
knew how to make people laugh at harsh 
reality. I may be called down for making 
this judgement but somehow in reading 
your articles I seem to feel you lack this 
talent. You just don't make it. But that's 
only my opinion. Maybe if you talked to 



some biased people such as Sinfonia 
pledges you would have a little more 
knowledge about what you were talking 
about. 

Now don't get me wrong. I'm not 
just against you (your article is what 
made me write this letter so maybe some 
good came out of it after all). I'm also 
against the paper in general. They never 
seem to write about the good the music 
department does for this campus. The 
Sinfonia-S.A.I. musical "Ruddigore" was 
a major event for this campus but when 
it was over no one on the paper even 
bothered to write a review on it as if it 
never happened. From what I could tell 
I think the people enjoyed it. And yet 
nothing was mentioned. Why?? I wonder 
if the Sinfonia Jazz Concert will be treat- 
ed with the same indifference. I hope 
not. The Music Department and the or- 
ganizations affiliated with it are doing 
things if someone would only take the 
time out to find out about them. 

Well, I guess I've had my say not 
that it will do any good. Just like every- 
thing else on this campus even the paper 
is apathetic. 

Joseph Gargiulo 



La Vie regrets that the content of 
Mr. Neideigh's column was found of- 
fensive to any member of the student 
body. We can only repeat that Sinfonia 
was not singled out and that the intent 
was to be humorous. While we take ex- 
ception to some of Mr. Gargiulo 's state- 
ments concerning both Mr. Neideigh and 
the entire publication, we thank Mr. 
Gargiulo for speaking out in print. La 
Vie has been attempting to increase its 
coverage of all activities of the campus. 
As a further note, Ruddigore was as- 
signed to a reporterfa member of the 
music department )who proved to be 
unreliable and failed to complete the 
assignment. -Ed. 



vide the spoils and pick who they want 
to fight in the next war. 

However, eighteen year olds should 
vote because they have lived and exper- 
ienced enough to be able to say how 
they'd like their government to be. They 
have been taught by then enough about 
their country and world situations so that 
they arc capable of making a decision like 
who they'd like for President. Also, they 
are active in the situations which the Pres- 
ident and Congress affects. Most impor- 
tant however, is because eighteen year 
olds are idealistic. It seems that after peo- 
ple graduate and settle into family or a 
business environment they are forced to 
be realistic and often times pessimistic, 
because they are busy with their life, and 
settlement means a hesitation and fear of 
change. So, the changes which are needed 
are left to the ones who have no perm- 
anence but who are still dreaming of their 
Utopia. Eighteen year olds are naive e- 
nough to believe their idealisms can work, 
and given a chance, they will. 

I'm not saying that eighteen year olds 
will suddenly change the world into a 
trouble-free world but they will certain- 
ly try, and maybe the effort will pay off 
in more than we bargained for. 



The Student Council on campus has 
been highly praised as ineffective, useless 
and a farce. I have a tendency to agree 
but I feel the fault lies within us, the 
student body. We are highly ignorant of 
our Student Council's activities and at- 
tempts but are too lazy to take the 
trouble to find out about them. Theoreti- 
cally, this organization is there to act 
within the limitations of our wishes. 
They represent us. If they don't do any- 
thing it is because we don't express any- 
thing to be done, or we express it to the 
wrong people. You can't say they haven't 
been trying to be noticed. There have 
been questionnaires; meetings are open 
All in vain. Opinions have been expressed 
about the possibility of a bulletin board 
in the College Center or announcements 
over the radio. I know what you're 
mostly thinking: "What a bother to read 
bulleitn boards" and "Announcements! 
I want to hear music, not somebody 
talking." So, as long as those feelings 
exist, Student Council shouldn't. Ob- 
viously we students are content and 
don't want to be worried about the 
politics of the school. Maybe there isn't 
too much you feel should be changed 
or if you do want something changed 
you feel you are powerless, and ignore 
your feelings. Involvement is such a pain. 
You can get away with that kind of 
attitude here in this small communal 
institution but national problems aren't 
so light. 

I would like to seriously extend my 
thanks to President Sample for con- 
tinuing the honor system in chapel. I 
would like to think the reason for this 
system is because of consideration of 
student opinion. 



CampuJ Scene 



The day dawns with the murkiness 
of Saturday's vcgetable-of-the-week soup 
nine days old. As the skyline of p a j] 
myra engulfs the moon and the rain 
splashes morosely upon Sample Lake(on 
the picturesque shores of Gossard and 
Lynch), strange beings emerge from their 
resting places, scurry hither and yop 
and pause occassionally to lurk amidst 
the landscaping. Who are they? From 
whence do they come? Is it the aroma 
of burnt toast from the dining hall which 
lures them here? Is it the sweet ca- 
cophony emanating from the conserv, 
or the inspirational sight of the rain- 
drops glistening on the chapel windows? 

But wait ... the fog is lifting, 
they're coming into view, they're . 
AAUUUGGGHHH!! "The Gnomes are 
coming! The Gnomes are coming!" 

Dear Reader, there is really no cause 
for alarm. Gnomes don't have green 
faces, curls, shields, sheets, or antennae. 
Gnomes don't carry sticks with strange 
symbols or eat, well anyway . . . And 
it's certainly too late in the year for a 
revival of frosh frolics, and the trustees 
won't be here for a while, so that must 
mean . . . 

Aha! Pledging is upon us! That ex- 
plains the hats, the paddles, the life- 
savers, and the prevalence of remark- 
ably humble attitudes among some peo- 
ple whose personalities are usually a bit 
more, shall we say, "exhuberant." 

Cheer up kiddies. Sure it's rough for 
two or three weeks but your identities 
will soon adapt to the sacred norm. 

After all, isn't that what college is 
all about, group?

Farewell to 
Flippancy 

by Bill Worrilow 

"Look! ... Up in the sky!? ... Is it a 
bir d'? ... Is it a plane!?" "No! It's pol- 
lution ." "WHAT!!??" 

That's right-pollution. That's the 
scene in the present realm of comic 
books. Your old superhero favorites- 
Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Flash 
j, a ve abdicated their roles as literal 
"world policemen," who would abort 
nefarious attempts to conquer the world, 
to concentrate on political, social, and 
environmental problems of America to- 
day- 

This new trend in comic content 
m ight explain the pervasive appearance 
f comic books in college dormitories 
(our own included), a fact supported by 
Marvel comics which estimates that 40 
per cent of its readers are college age and 
o\dei(Newsweek, Nov. 23, 1970). 

Signs of the time are replete in the 
comic world. In recent issues Superman 
is neurosis conscious, Robin has gone off 
to college and Batman has moved to the 
city to fight pollution. Green Lantern 
engenders an all-out fight against dis- 
crimination, and Wonder Woman and 
Lois Lane join the Women's Liberation 
movement.

Provacative cover pages have always 
enhanced sales. And that goes for the 
new-look comics: in the Nov. 1970 issue 
of "Lois Lane" the cover page shows 
Superman closing a white Lois Lane in a 
sarcophagus-type transformer, pulling a 
lever at a switch panel, and then open- 
ing the transformer door to reveal a black 
Lois Lane, title: "I Am Curious (Black)!" 

As far as dress is concerned, the male 
superheroes still do their crime-fighting 
in the tight-fitting, muscle-outlining, leo- 
tard-cape costumes with respective em- 
blems emblazoned on their jerseys (one 
exception is Robin, who is seen on cam- 
pus in bell-bottoms). Their females are 
as curvaceous as the men are muscular, 
and their tight-fitting as well as abbre- 
viated apparel does much justice to their 
figures. Lois Lane's wardrobe consists 
mainly of microskirts. Skin-tight bolero- 
hot pants ensembles bring out the good 
m Buxom but baleful beauties as Valky- 
rie and her Lady Liberators, who sub- 
bed the "male chauvinist pigs" of the

D.C. and Marvel are the two larg-

content to a "growing sophistication of

Lutenist Performs in Chapel 



Suzanne Bloch, an authority on Eliz-

with a suite for flute and piano. 

While in Germany, Suzanne bought 
her first lute, but it was a few years later 
after she began to teach that enough 



money was saved to buy a real lute-an 
instrument that must have from 16-19 
strings. 

Her first concert as a soloist was in 
1938 at Judson Hall in New York. She 
immediately went under regular namage- 
ment and started touring colleges to play 
ancient music. Although response was 
slow at first, audiences are beginning to 
understand and enjoy her music. 

"This type of music had for many 
years been considered pathetic, and really 
for old maids, male, and female," Miss 
Bloch explains. "I have tried to show 
that it is alive, and has some thing to 
say to us today. Elizabethan music is 
actually similar to popular music in that 
it takes a hit tune and varies it. It is 
beautiful music that relates to the pre- 
sent, yet tells so much of the past." 

Miss Bloch has now toured extensive- 
ly in the U.S., Canada and Europe. She 
has played with major symphonies, in- 
cluding the New York Philharmonic. 

Currently Miss Bloch is a member of 
the faculty of the Juilliard School and 
conducts a seminar on Renaissance mus- 
ic for graduate students. She is also wri- 
ting an extensive biography of her father 
based on his unedited memoirs. 

Miss Bloch's visit is another organized 
by the Association of American Colleges' 
Art Programs, a non-profit concert and 
lecture agency. 




THE ARTS IN REVIEW

Jazz Fans Abound 



by Cathy Mason 

Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity 
recently 1ield its tenth annual Jazz Con- 
cert. Never having been to a jazz concert 
at LVC (my only previous hearing of the 
Jazz Band consisted of snatches of music 
wafting down from Sinfonia Hall of an 
evening), I was surprised at the polish 
and professionalism of this group. Sever- 
al of the members of the band had 
written and arranged pieces which sound- 
ed accomplished to the inexpert ear, as 
did many of the members' improvisa- 
tions. The band seemed welded into a 
group which performed in a straightfor- 
ward, business-like manner. Since I know 
very little about jazz, I can only say that 
they gave the impression of knowing 
quite well what they were doing. The 
two professionals, Jerome Richardson 
and Walt Levinsky, seemed impressed 
by their playing. 




Walt Levinsky 

Avid interest in jazz does not seem 
too widespread on this campus-one 
usually hears rock in the dorms and the 
dining hall. Yet there was an excellent 
turnout and a good response from the 
audience. The band seemed to be trying 
to widen its appeal by using arrange- 
ments of rock tunes; and I think it 
succeeded. Yet, the band was also edu- 
cating the audience in the range and 
possibilities of modern jazz. Perhaps the 
future of popular music will be a closer 
marriage between all the popular forms- 
rock, blues, jazz, etc. 

The Jazz Band is attempting a fur- 
ther education in and exposure to jazz 
for the campus in the form of the First 
Annual Lebanon Valley College Jazz 
Festival, in which will participate other 
jazz bands in the area. 



CINEMA 

by Sue Ann Helm 

Five Easy Pieces directed by Robert 
Rafelson and written by Carol Eastman 
under the pen name of Adrien Joyce 
explores the complex and contradictory 
motivations of a young man. Jack 
Nicholson, as Bobby Dupea, attaches 
himself to the screen and intimately 
molds the film into a tradgic portrait of 
a pianist turned rambler. 

Bobby Dupea originated in a highly 
intellectual atmosphere where all family 
members were born for the piano. He 
evidently became dissatisfied with home 
and concert life; finding himself bored, 
he left. What one sees of Dupea's life 
seems futile, meaningless. He works in 



the oilfields, drinks with a raucous, oily 
buddy who later is arrested for theft 
much to our anti-hero's dismay, and balls 
lots of chicks. He isn't, however, altoget- 
her insensitive or inhuman. Seeing his 
buddy battling 2 unidentified cops, he 
quickly lends a hand only to be told 
thanks, but no thanks by his buddy, 
who knows it's hopeless. His floozy, not 
too bright girlfriend played by Karen 
Black represents only another segment 
in Bobby's life. He remains with her un- 
til he cannot stand it any longer, then he 
leaves by hitching a ride with the nearest 
trucker. 

His return home gives the audience 
some much needed background in Bob- 
by's life. One wonders why he can't find 
something meaningful, some content- 
ment; why he is always bored and on the 
move. Several possibilities are evoked 
during his return home to see his dying 
father. However, there remains a bit of 
the unexplainable. Why he fails to find 
fulfillment while an older brother and 
younger sister at least find something at 
home or in their work to sustain them. 
Another variable shoulders its unpredict- 
able head into the family group. The 
older brother's future wife played by the 
beautiful Susan Anspach has had her 
troubles too; her relationship with the 
family and Bobby is important because 
she is an outsider come to this house for 
refuge and fulfillment. She has already 
been through an unsuccessful marriage 
and now accepts the Dupea household, 
life, and work a$ her own. Her marriage 
to Bobby's older brother leaves much to 
be desired since he is partially paralysed 
due to an injury and is a rather stuffy, 
starched shirt next to both her and of 
course Bobby. Bobby seduces her but 
she, unlike he, chooses to remain with 
the brother even though Bobby invites 
her to accompany him. Her similarity 
to the restless Bobby in vitality, youth, 
and promise of ability accompanied by 
their dissimilarities seems to be the most 
direct statement made in the film. One 
day she returns from riding in the coun- 
try and Bobby approaches her wanting 
to know how she, a young, intelligent 
girl, can stand living in this house of de- 
caying old people. "I'm bored," he says. 
"Are you?" she returns, "I'm sure it 
must be very hard for you to remain 
here. I've never been bored." 

Later, Bobby again tries to verbalize 
the crumbling life he has chosen but 
doesn't quite understand why he has 
chosen it or where he would rather be. In 
one particularly moving scene, he con- 
fronts his dying father, "We never got 
along very well," Bobby winces. "If you 
want to know what I do, I move around 
a lot. I usually move in, stay till things 
get bad and then move on again." So he 
moves on leaving his audience touched,

TOM CORBETT 

Comment on Sports 

The Lebanon Valley College basketball team has a winning season for the fust 
time in 10 years. But a more important event that that is that the Dutchmen are as- 
sured of a place in the playoffs to be held at Moravian sometime in March 
Why after 10 years has the Valley suddenly become good enough to earn a playoff 
spot I don't really know. But one reason would have to be the teamwork on the 
court. 

Teamwork has led the Valley to outstanding victories in the present four game 
winning streak. This teamwork has shown up in the two major areas of the game, 
offense and defense. 

In the first three games of the present homestand the Valley offense has averaged 
92.3 points a game while defensively they have held the opposition to 63.3 points 
average. These two facts strongly point out one reason to the reversal in basketball 
at Lebanon Valley. But this team is made up of 10 individuals who must work 
together on this team to accomplish statistics as previously stated. To me it is the 
balance of this team that has enabled them to gain a berth in the playoffs. 

Ed Iannarella, a sophomore, is the court general. He directs the team on the 
court according to the wishes of the coach. George Petrie, a junior, a consistent 
clutch ballplayer, is a definite asset to the team. Kris Linde, sophomore, has come 
on strong the past few games especially in the rebound department, grabbing 39 
rebounds in 3 games. Steve Mellini, the only senior on the team, is the man who 
plays the opposition's best player. Look at the scores of the ballgames to see the 
result of Steve's outstanding work. Don Johnson, a sophomore, has come on this 
season to help put the Valley at the top. Currently second in scoring in the M.A.C. 
Johnson is a tremendous team player both offensively and defensively. Chip Etter 
is the very important sixth man, who when he comes into the game does not up- 
set the balance of the team. Chip is a hard-working competitor who is always high in 
scoring for the Valley. There six men along with John Mardula, Rod Shane, George 
Schwarz and Peter Harubin have combined to create the best team the Valley 
cagers have had in 10 years. 

One last comment would be for people to take note of local interest, outside 
the college, in this year's team. In four years of attending Lebanon Valley I can 
never remember so many spectators at a basketball game. I hope that this outside 
support will continue, but not only for basketball but for all Valley sports.

L.V. Cagers 
Triumph 

February 13th saw the highflying 
Lebanon Valley basketball team return 
to Lynch Memorial gym for a 5 game 
homestand. In that homestand the Val- 
ley has scored three very impressive vic- 
tories and have two games remaining. 
These three wins insure the Valley of a 
spot in the playoffs at the end of the 
season and gave the Valley its first win- 
ning season of 10 years. 

The first win of the series was a- 
gainst the second place team in the 
M.A.C. 's, PMC. This game billed to be 
a close one for the Dutchmen was just a 
preview of the next two games. The 
L.V. cagers soundly defeated the Pio- 
neers by a score of 76-57. In that game 
Steve Mellini had 12 points, Kris Linde 
18 points and 13 rebounds, and Donnie 
Johnson 31 points and 5 blocked shots. 
For Johnson this 3 1 point game coupled 
with a 30 point game against Washing- 
ton earlier in the week earned him a spot 
on the E.C.A.C. section II first team of 
the week. Kris Linde was also named to 
the honorable mention team. 

The Terrors of Western Maryland in- 
vaded Lynch Gym on Thursday the 1 8th 
only to be tamed by the Dutchmen. 
This game was a runaway for the Valley. 
Leading at half by 20 points they finis 
ished the game leading by 39 points by 
by a score of 105-69. Coach Gaeckler 
played his subs from the 10 minute mark 
in the second half resting his starters 
for their next encounter. The Western 
Maryland game saw the Valley put five 
men in double figures. Ed Ianneralla had 
16 points, Kris Linde 10 points and 12 
rebounds, Don Johnson 23 points, 22 
rebounds, and 7 blocked shots, George 
Petrie 16 points and Chip Etter 17 points. 
Steve Mellini the key to the defense 
grabbed 1 1 rebounds. 

Saturday a near capcaity house saw 
the Valley take on Upsala who was then 
in second place in the Northern Division 
of the M.A.C. When the night was over 
the students, alumni, faculty and towns- 
people (note that) walked away with 
smiles on their faces. The Valley win 
string was now at four after a stunning 
96-67 victory over a strong tall team 
from Upsala. High scorer in this game as 
well as in most of the recent games, 
was again Don Johnson with 22 points 
and 15 rebounds, Chip Etter 14 points, 
Kris Linde 14 points and 14 rebounds, 
and George Petrie 12 points. Again 
Steve Mellini had 1 2 rebounds. 

The Valley was in control of this 
game from the start, being behind only 
once and that was at the first basket. 



Girl's B-Ball 



by Pat Dougherty 

With a victory against Albright 31-15, 
the Women's Basketball team opened 
their season January 13th. The team 
played together, taking turns racking up 
points. Unfortunately their great begin- 
ning didn't carry through to their other 
games. 

Three losses since their initial win has 
affected the optimisn but not the spirit 
of the Varsity squad. Although their luck 
has not proved the best, perhaps their 
persistance is beginning to pay off. Their 
first loss (70-14) to Elizabeth town, fol- 
lowed by a (51-17) loss to Muhlenberg 
and a (49-23) loss to Messiah. Each score 
became somewhat closer, hopefully sig- 
nificant of future victory. 

Five games remain for the Varsity 
squad, but forecasting is difficult. The 
team faces some of its stiffest competi- 
tion in the next few weeks, including 
Millersville and Susquehanna, both away 
games. Anxious for further victory, the 
teamhas a good chance of winning a few 
more of their games, to help toward the 
desired winning season. 

With only eighteen girls making up 
the two squads, the teams have a disad- 
vantage. Sprained ankles and other injur- 
ies further limit the number of girls able 
to play. The Junior Varsity, playing with 
only four substitutes, has played two 
games, against E-town and Messiah. Nei- 
ther was a victory, but potential on the 
JV squad is very promising. 

The remaining home game is Feb. 
27th at 2 PM, against Western Maryland. 
Come out and give these teams your sup- 
port for their continuing effort and hard 
work. 



LACROSSE 
COMMENCES 



by Tom Corbett 

With the basketball and wrestling sea- 
sons only half over the Lebanon Valley 
Lacrosse Team began pre-season work- 
outs on Feb. 3. The team, coached by 
William McHenry and assisted by Roger 
Gaeckler, will be the seventh Dutchmen 
lacrosse team. In the past few years the 
Dutchmen have become a strong club. 
In 1968 the Dutchmen took the M.A.C. 
crown and in 1969 finished second. Last 
year was a disappointing one with the 
Valley having a 500% season of 5 wins 
and 5 losses. Last year was a rebuilding 
year for the Valley stickmen and the 
players are hopeful of a much better 
season this year. 

Co-captians for this year are Tom 
Cestare senior attackman and Don Engle 
also a senior attackman. Pre-season prac- 
tice consists of stickwork and condition- 
ing. The team will practice three times 
a week until the first week in March 
when the regular practices begin.

Although this film is a veritable con- 
tinuum of memorable scenes, one more 
scene must be mentioned here. On his 
way to his father's house, Bobby and 
his country singing, doffy chick pick up 
two hitchhiking cleanliness fanatics who 
are thumbing a ride to Alaska because 
"Someone told us it's clean up there." 
The primary purity promoter potrayed 
tremendously by Helena Dallianites con- 
tinues: "This country . . . look at all the 
filth. You know -like filth and junk all 
over the place. I can't stand it; it's dis- 
gusting." She moves on too. One cannot 
help but compare the wanderings of this 
strange girl, who believes in a clean Amer- 
ica just over the hill or for that matter 
just up the coast several hundred miles, 
and the searching Bobby Dupea, who no 
longer believes in an Eldorado and sees 
'only white snow that melts but who 
keeps moving on.

Silence reigns in the Auxiliary Gym 
on Wednesday evenings this semester as 
karate replaces the grunts of wrestlers 
working out on mats. Instead, one can 
only hear the sounds of feet and fists 
kicking and punching the air as sixteen 
students learn the basics of the Oriental 
martial art. Physical Education 17, as it 
is officially named, is taught by a second 
degree black belt Mr. Rich Garnish who 
also teaches a similar course at Dickinson. 
He is assisted by sixteen-year-old .Carl 
Guernsey, a brown belt. 

Beginning with a stand to attention 
(KIOTSOKE), the class bows to Mr. 
Garnish (REI) and begins (RAJIME) a 
series of calisthenics designed to limber 
the body for two hours of blocking, 
punching, and kicking. Fundamental foot 
and hand positions are practiced with 
15 exercises. Basic punching and block- 
ing movements follow with an additional 
15 exercises. On February 16 four one- 
punch blows (KUMITE) were introduced 
in which specific karate blows, kicks, 
chops, and blocks involving the use of 
the knuckle of the fist, "the chopping 
edge of the hand" and the ball and out- 
side edge of the foot. The extended 
fingers (NUKITE) are also strengthened 
and used like a spear point. On Febru- 
ary 23 the first KATA was introduced. 
Katas are prearranged series of move- 
ments against two to eight imaginary 
opponents personifying good breath con- 
trol, balance, concentration, fool posi- 
tion, etc. In addition to kicking, punch- 
ing, and blocking, turning, leaping, and 
dodging are practiced. The first three 
weeks the students learn the preceding 
fundamentals, spending the rest of the 
semester perfecting the speed and accur- 
acy of the moves. The first week Mr. 




INSTRUCTOR RON GARNISH 

Garnish told the class that it would take 
at least a semester of practice before 
actual sparring with another person. 

The style of Karate that is being 
taught in the Auxiliary Gym originated 
in Okinawa after 450 years of evolution. 
ISSHIN-RHU KARATE has developed 
from two principle styles, SHORIN-RHU 
(circa 1510) in which the wrists are 
straight and flexible, and GOJO-RHU 
(circa 1600) in which the body is firm 
and tight. Master Talsuo Shimabuku 
studied these two early styles for 30 
years before developing ISSHIN RHU 
Karate in 1945. Sgt. Richard Keith in- 
troduced this latest style to the United 
States after World War II. 



Dutchmen Grapple; 2-2 Record 



by Tom Corbett 

From Feb. 10th to Feb. 20th the 
Lebanon Valley Wrestling Team wresded 
on four matches, 3 home and 1 away. 
The result was two victories and two 
close defeats. 

On Feb. 10th the Dutchmen hosted 
Haverford College. When the afternoon 
was over the Valley had a resounding 
31-12 victory. This was an unusual match 
in that of the 10 individual matches, 7 
were decided by a fall with the Valley 
registering 5 falls by Steve Grove, Guy 
Lesser, Doren Leathers, Tom Koons and 
Ed Thomas. Mike Probus and Jay Cath- 
erman won by decisions for a final total 
of 31 points. Haverford, who recorded 
2 falls and a decision, lost points for 
misconduct. 

Three days later the Valley traveled 
to Washington College where they won 
their most impressive match of the year 
by a score of 34-3. Winning for the 
Valley by decision were Steve Grove, 
Guy Lesser and Alan Shortell. Winning 
by a fall for the Valley were Mark 
Fuhrer, Ron Kiscadden, Mike Probus 
and Ed Thomas. Forfeits were given to 
Doren Leathers and Howie, Snyder. In 
this match Ed Thomas set a new school 
record in falls by notching his 21st of 
his career. 

On Feb. 16 the Valley's non-losing 
streak came to an abrupt end when the 
visiting team from Western Maryland de- 
feated the Valley 24-11. Although the 
score reads lopsided this was a very close 
contest. Winning for the Valley were 
Steve Grove by decision, Tom Koons by 
a decision, and Ed Thomas by a fall. 

Again on Feb. 20th the grapplers lost 
a very close contest to Mulenburg by a 



score of 20-16. This match was not de- 
cided until one of the very last matches 
of the day. Winning by decisions for the 
Valley were Steve Grove, Guy Lesser, 
Mike Probus and Ed Thomas. Doren 
Leathers and Alan Shortell both tied for 
the Valley. 

With one match remaining some of 
the individual records of Valley grapplers 
are as follows: Ed Thomas7-l; Tom 
Koons 8-2-1 ; Mike Probus 8-3 and Steve 
Grove 9-3.

NEW YORK, N.Y. -(National Wildlife Federation)-Air pollution of- 
ficials in New York City fear that lead from automobile exhausts may be 
causing the high lead levels showing up in the blood of city residents. 

Though no federal standards have been set on lead levels in the air, 
c ity officials are alarmed at amounts indicated by sampling stations in 
traffic-clogged Manhattan. The city's Health Department has found high 
lead levels in the blood of urban children which could not have been 
caused from eating old lead-based paints. Such paints, until recently, 
we re blamed for adnormally high lead levels in children's blood. 

The air pollution officials have asked the city council to ban all leaded 
gasoline in the city under a new air-polution code.

"Honor" System to Continue 



by Jane Snyder 

The Chapel-Convocation Policy Com- 
mi ttee, summoned to a special meeting 
0n Tuesday, February 16 in the Presi- 
dent's Office, met to discuss the present 
c hapel-convocation program attendance

Ferenc Nagy, former Prime Minister 
of Hungary, will be the speaker this 
Tuesday as a part of the Chapel-Convo 
cation program. Dr. Nagy held the post 
from 1946-47 and is now in exile from 
the present Communist government in 
that country. Since taking up residency 
in the United States, Dr. Nagy has never 
ceased to be active in world affairs, He 
is the author of a number of magazine 
articles and has written a book entitled 
Struggle Behind the Iron Curtain. Al- 
though forbidden to return to his native 
land, Dr. Nagy has made frequent trips 
to Europe especially to attend interna- 
tional conferences with many of Europe's 
leading statesmen. He has also toured 
the Far East. In the U. S. Dr. Nagy has 
spoken to numerous economic and ser- 
vice clubs, civic groups and religious or- 
ganizations; has appeared on national and 
local television; and has held hundreds of 
press conferences and interviews for 
radio and news media. In addition, Dr. 
Nagy has delivered lectures at more than 
300 colleges and universities since the 
fall of 1963. His lecture topics include 
the whole span of time from the take- 
over of Hungary by the Communists 
in 1947 to an analysis of the present 
Soviet government and the future of the

(4) Is the present "on your honor to

Quest of Freedom" published by the 
U. S. Information Agency: 

Beneath the mild exterior of Ferenc 
Nagy bums a stubborn resistance to 
tyranny and a devotion to the people 
of his homeland, Hungary. 




FERENC NAGY 

Jailed for his political beliefs by the 
nazis, hten forced from office as Premier 
by the communists in 1947 for those 
same beliefs, Nagy now lives a quiet 
life in the United States. 

Hungary knew freedom only briefly 
after the Axis defeat in World War II 
when the first -and last -free election 
was held. Nagy's Smallholders' Party 



won a resounding victory, attracting 
58 per cent of the voters to the com- 
munists' 17. Nagy himself was chosen 
President of the new Assembly of Hun- 
gary's Parliment, and later Premier. 

Seeking to rebuild his war-ravaged 
country, he tried to govern in coalition 
with the communists. For his effort, his 
economic and political programs were 
sabotaged by the communists to the 
dismay of all patriotic citizens. While 
he was in Switzerland for a needed rest 
from the pressure of office, the commun- 
ists staged a well-organized coup d'etat, 
and forced the Premier's resignation by 
holding his young son as hostage. 

Thus, one of Hungary's foremost 
patriots was turned out of his own 
country. "In 19 months," says Nagy, 
summing it up, "I saw my country con- 
quered from within by a small commun- 
ist minority, led by seven men especial- 
ly trained and directed in this task by 
the Soviet Union. I am living proof that 
you cannot compromise with commun- 
ism." 

Today in the United States, Ferenc 
Nagy lives the life of a farmer-a trade 
he knows well. Like another famous 
Hungarian patriot, Lajos Kossuth, who 
came to the U. S. a century before him, 
Nagy continues to serve the goal of Hun- 
garian independence.

Trustees Modify Inter visitation 



by Richard Thompson 

With one dissenting vote, the Board 
of Trustees has approved a modified ver- 
sion of the proposed replacement for 
institutional rule number five. 

In a meeting on Saturday, February 
27, the trustees rejected, by a vote of 
12 to 14, the version of the replace- 
ment that had been drawn up by the 
Student Government Executive Com- 
mittee and approved by both the stu- 
dent body and the faculty. This ver- 
sion had contained provisions for week- 
day hours for intervisitation. 

The trustees then passed, by a vote 
of 25 to 1, a version deleting the week- 
day hours. No other changes were made 
in the proposal as submitted to the 
Board. 

The vote totals show that much of 
the trustees' dissatisfaction with the orig- 
inal version centered on the weekday 
hours. Many of those speaking against 
that version were concerned with the 
possible lack of general and Financial 
support for the college following such 
a change. Special concern was voiced 
for the upcoming Fund for Fulfillment 
campaign. 

There was some concern expressed 
for the privacy of individual students, 
and also about the lack of enforcement 
of present rules. 

At a meeting of dormitory counselors, 
student government leaders, members of 
the Executive Committee, housemothers, 
and student deans, President Sample ex- 
plained what the trustees had approved. 
He said that although the result was not 
what many would have liked, it is "a 
little more flexible, a little broader, and 
a little improvement over what we had 
before. Let's go together and make it 
work." 

Asked if it would be possible to again 
present the proposal including the week- 
day hours, Dr. Sample replied, "Oh, 
yes, it's always possible," but added his 
belief that the first "practical" time 
would be at the Spring meeting, set for 
June 4. 

Working within the new policy, the 
Student Senate has passed supporting 
legislation providing for hours of inter- 
visitation to be in effect for the re- 
mainder of the semester, unless altered 
by Senate action or by votes in individ- 
ual dorms. Any dorm may have a vote to 
limit the hours for intervisitation within 
those authorized by the Senate, if a peti- 
tion is submitted by the residents ■ 
with "what the Senate deems a sufficient 



number of signatures." 

Also, a visiting person of the opposite 
sex in a dorm must be escorted at all 
times by a resident of that dorm, who 
is also responsible for the actions of that 
guest. Quiet hours and women's security 
system are not affected by the new pol- 
icy. All of the supporting legislation has 
been approved by Dean Marquette and 
Dean Faust. 

Dr. Sample has also asked that stu- 
dents not refer to the "new open house 
program," urging adherence to the "in- 
tervisitation-escort" idea. Dorms will now 
be open for intervisitation only to stu- 
dents and their guests, in contrast to 



"open house," where dorms were open 
to anyone. 

John Ulrich, a member of the Execu- 
tive Committee, wishes that the trustees 
had passed the full program, and be- 
lives that they would gain more stu- 
dent respect if they would pass it in the 
future. The Board would seem more re- 
ceptive to change, not as a body adhering 
to traditional, unchanging ideas. 

The trustees also passed the amend- 
ment adding three freshman members to 
the Student Council, to be elected in 
September of each year. The vote was un- 
animous. They also took time after the 
meeting to tour the new student center.

INTIMATION 



by AL SCHMICK 



The baby seal in the photo was one of 50,000 killed in the 
Gulf of St. Lawrence, one of over half a million seals 
clubbed, speared, shot, gaffed during the 1970 Canadian- 
Norwegian slaughter in the Atlantic. 
Don't believe furriers who would persuade you that 
Friends of Animals has been "misleading" you, that any 
slaughter anywhere is done for the benefit of the seals. 
I, Alice Herrington, testify that on March 21, 1970-the 
second day of the Canadian season on seals-l saw the 
same brutal massacre against which Friends of Animals, 
of which I am president, has been protesting for years. 
As the bubble-domed helicopter flew low over the first day's 
kill, t saw mother seals nuzzling the skinless corpses of 
their babies. Standing ten feet away from the killers on the 
ice floes, twenty miles out in the Gulf, I saw baby seals, 
clubbed twice, raise their heads as they were sliced open. 
Other babies were battered as many as fourteen times 
while the mothers watched in terror and stress.

GUEST 
COLUMN 

by Judi Bowman 

Revolt, youth movements, the genera- 
tion gap and the new society are all a part 
of the all too real problems concerning 
today's society. 

According to a lead authority, Daniel 
Yankelovich, the results of two compre- 
hensive studies of college students re- 
vealed that only 3 per cent of the stu- 
dent population are radical revolutionar- 
ies, the troublemakers. Forty-one per cent 
of the student population, however, con- 
cur with the radicals' diagnosis of what 
is wrong with American society, though 
they do not endorse revolutionary tatics. 

When one compares 3 per cent to the 
25 per cent of the population of the Thir- 
teen Colonies actively supporting the 
American Revolution, today's conflict 
seems mild. Mr. Yankelovich points out, 
however, that a greater conflict is brew- 
ing between youth and business, rather 
than youth and the university. 

Today, youth is alienated from socie- 
ty, or against "the system," because of 
its continued minority group discrimina- 
tion, its use of military and economic pow- 
er in the exploitation of the people, the 
existence of institutions indifferent to 
the social needs of the people and be- 
cause of the continued national prosper- 
ity while a large section of the society 
continues to be in a desparate situation. 

Very little can be done to change the 
minds of the hardcore radicals, but com- 
munication with the 41 per cent of the 
student population sharing the radicals' 
beliefs and the 56 per cent desiring non- 
destructive reforms may have an ameliora- 
tive effect. 

The communication must be two-di- 
rectional, that is, to and from the youth 
and establishment. Open speech, open 
minds, facts and opinions must be ex 



intends to pound on the world's conscience until sentient 
men and women everywhere are made aware of the 
unnecessary cruelty and destruction being inflicted upon 
animals. Your contribution will be used to plead for those 
creatures who cannot speak for themselves but who dumbly 
implore your pity.

I love my car. My car is almost as old 
as me. My car was assembled and driven 
out of some auto plant when Eisenhower 
was elected to his second term as Presi- 
dent, when Joe McCarthy was suffering 
his political demise, when the great Fed- 
erally-subsidized highway construction 
program was initiated (perhaps in antici- 
pation of my car?). It was also a year 
in which Rock 'n Roll was establishing 
itself as music for discontented youth - 
and those older blacks who insisted it 
was their music all along. 

Music from the Orioles, the Teenagers, 
Presley, Fats Domino, Bill Haley and the 
Comets-a perfect backdrop to Early A- 
quarian sojourns to hot dog and hambur- 
ger stands, where the gang could meet 
and swap speed secrets and load up their 
dogs with relish, onions, mustard, ketch- 
up, and Quaker State. (Thank you Frank 
Zappa.) A few of the lucky ones had late 
model Fords and Chevys (like my car), 
and the girls were "neat" ideal accessories 
to trumpet-exhausted raked sedans. 

Yes, I can remember my embarass- 
ment when I was only about seven, and 
riding with my parents, and stopping at 



The Capitol Was Bombed ? ! 



by Jeffrey Heller 

I have always considered myself to be 
a moderate conservative, but the bomb- 
ing of the National Capitol building is 
too bitter a mouthful to swallow, and 
merits a measure of unadorned conser- 
vative comment. The act of bombing the 
Capitol must rank as the most un-Amer- 
ican act of recent years, no matter what 
one's political philosophy may be. The 
damage actually done by the explosion 
of the bomb was, fortunately, not ex- 
tensive, however the symbolic implica- 
tions of the bombing cannot be over- 
stated. 

For more than a decade now we 
have watched the New Left form. In 
the late 1950's and early 1960's there 
was the Negro civil rights movement. 
Next came Lyndon Johnson's Vietnam 
War and the New Left made itself quite 
evident in protesting that war, not al- 
ways peacefully and not always legally. 
During the past year-and-a-half the ex- 
treme fringe of the New Left, Weather- 
men and the like have seen fit to blow 
up buildings having only remote con- 
nections with the government. Now that 
depraved fringe of the New Left has seen 
fit to conduct its formal alienation from 
the American political system. Striking at 
the very heart of our democratic pro- 
cess will not lead these sick people to be 
honored and embraced by the American 
people, for practically all Americans, Re- 
publicans and Democrats, liberals and 
conservatives, see the complete folly of 
using violence as a means to achieving 
an end. And what end is that? 

The voice on the telephone early Mon- 
day morning said that the bombing of 
-the Capitol was to protest President Nix- 
on's involvement in Laos. Well, have we 
come to the ultimate in government? Ev- 
changed. Internships providing youth the e ry time some lunatic disagrees with gov- 
opportunity to take an active part in bus- 
iness and government exchange would 
seem beneficial. 

^ Youth is skeptical and action-oriented 
one can no longer rely on rhetoric to al- 
leviate and explain away problems. 



ernment is he or she going to pick out 
a significant national building and try to 
blow it up? No! The people of this na- 
tion will not tolerate such blatant un- 
Americanism. I am sure there are those 
who will say that the individual who

planted the bomb was actually a true 
blue American, very concerned about the 
direction his or her nation is taking and 
is seeking only to correct the government 
of the nation that he loves so much, to 
this I say baloney!!! How can anyone 
possibly say that they are trying to build 
a better government and nation by means 
of destruction. Until they, those who en- 
gage only in violent protest, offer a pos- 
itive program of forward looking action 
they may as well give up. 

The members of the U.S. Senate, un- 
der whose chamber the bombing took 
place, were generally united in their con- 
demnation of the bombing. For the most 
part the Senators too see that violence 
is not a viable means for change in our 
society. There was of course, Senator 
George McGovern (D-S.D.) who quickly 
slipped into his consistant radical-liberal- 
ism and blamed "the derangement of our 
society" resulting from this nation's in- 
volvement in the Indo-China war as the 
main cause for the bombing of the Cap- 
itol. Typically, Senator McGovern has 
seen fit to travel in a circle and, like he 
always does, blame an undesirable dom- 
estic incident on U.S. foreign policy, and 
as usual I feel Senator McGovern is com- 
pletely wrong in his thinking, for he has 
allowed his disliking of U.S. foreign pol- 
icy to cloud his thinking and prohibit 
him from making an honest, true and 
realistic judgment of an unpleasant sit- 
uation. 

I do not wish to imply that I think 
this nation should forget clear thinking 
and justice, and go on a rampage in or- 
der to find someone, or some group on 
which to blame this horrible act of sense- 
less violence. At this point in time no- 
thing could be worse for our nation than 
to relive the post-World War I days of 
Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer or 
the Communist-hunting days of the early 
1950's when Senatot Joseph McCarthy 
saw Communism where Communism did 
not exist. Instead, we should keep out 
wits about us and make a truly honest ef- 
fort to see that those who inflicted the 
gross injustice of bombing the Capitol on 
the American people are brought to just- 
ice. This does not mean to simply try 
any individual or individulas fairly and 
convict them of bombing the Capitol, but 
to see that those who are guilty of this 
distasteFul act are brought to justice, tried 
fairly, and punished equitably. 

Let no one of future decades look' 
back and say that Americans of this day 
used injustice to punish guilt, reacted ra- 
ther than reasoned. We, as a nation, have 
an excellent opportunity to take the 
bombing of the Capitol and use this 
thoughtless act to exemplify the fairness, 
justice, reason, and dignity of the socio- 
political system some demented person 
or persons thought would be hurt by the 
bombing of the Capitol, and prove that 
system's true greatness to all people ev- 
erywhere. 



a hamburg stand populated with leathered 
and greased teenagers who said bad words 
like "hell" and "sheet", my mother and 
father looked so good compared to those 
acned adolescents-my mother in her midi 
and my father in his double-breasted grey 
suit. My Dad had a new model car then- 
but it wasn't like the others parked a- 
bout on the gravel lot. It didn't have spin- 
ner hubcaps or painted flames on the 
hood. 

I am a part of this great past because 
my car is a part of it. And it looks so 
much like the one Daddy had when I was 
initiated into the early phase of Love and 
Flowers. 

Just the other evening I took a ride in 
this little artifact of American cultural 
history to the Harrisburg East Mall, the 
fabulous new shopping plaza of Central 
Penna. To those who haven't been there, 
I must say that you have missed the ul- 
timate in natural commercialism. The 
place is completely furnished with spurt- 
ing fountains and pools that often mys- 
teriously generate detergent suds, as well 
as the latest in neon sign come-ons in ma- 
genta, purple and orange. 

But the greatest feature are the hippies 
who clog walkways, stairways, and once 
in a while, a pool. You can slip on the ice 
cream that has been dropped from a Pur- 
ple Cow cone-that is being eaten by a 
hippie. You can watch with delight when 
the Lower Paxton police, who are ever 
vigilant against public nuisances and dan- 
gers, move swiftly to break up groups of 
these innocent young when they appear 



to be ready to descend upon one of th e 
sixty-odd shops to rip off clothes, re. 
cords, clackers, or food. 

I don't believe they are hippies, really 
These kids go home at night, undoi% 
ably, to some warm bed in Colonial Pa^ 
or Rutherford Heights. They seem to 
have some money to spend when a cop 
becomes too suspicious. And they often 
wear clothes that don't look too much 
like Salvation Army or Goodwill castoffs 

As I watched the crowds move, gawk 
and jockey for recognition, I wondered 
if the differences between grease and 
grass are really that great. What stands 
between a pink Ford Vicky with chromed 
carburetors and a Volkswagon bus with 
flowers all over? Do the girls in buckskin 
and bells expect to get a guy 's high school 
ring? Is that first beer sneaked into the 
car really a thrill? The hair is now greased 
down, not back, but the heads are still 
filled with thoughts of girls/boys, booze/ 
dope, and cops/pigs. 

It's not the kids fault. They need Mom 
and Dad and the folks aren't there to 
help (James Dean). They've got money 
and are kicked out of the house to spend 
it. They strive for attention like their 
1956 counterparts, and it is fascinating 
to watch the pained expressions on the 
faces of those who can't attract admira- 
tion from the group or from "straight" 
passersby of the same age. 

I drove home around closing time, as- 
sured that the world was not so far out 
of joint that it could not be understood, 
Isn't it wonderful that a car can assure 
such insight? 



COMMENT 



by Carlo DeAugustine 



When groups of people have an idea 
they think is the ultimate and only pos- 
sible way they attempt to establish this 
idea into a reality by getting a following 
and building up from there. Soon, prob- 
lems arise where this group finds that 
their ideas clash with their neighbors or 
their neighbor won't allow them to build 
then force appears in the form of mili- 
tarism. It is probably easier to destroy 
and knock things over than it is to try 
and hold them up, especially when the 
object is human relationships, a very 
fragile object. However, this only causes 
a merry-go-round of pain, death, and fail- 
ure. Governments, rightists, leftists, black 
people, students, and even individuals 
seem to favor the opinion that if some- 
one doesn't right away accept my idea, 
IH do away withchim, or at least threaten 
to. So we have everyone threatening 
everyone else with the result being mass 
distrust, suspicion, and a strengthening 
of the walls of prejudice. If an enemy 
threatens to attack your home your first 
instinct is to fortify it with enough arm- 
aments so he can't get in and maybe you 
can destroy him. So it is with human 
relationships, everyone is fortifying their 
own biased beliefs and refusing to listen 
to anyone else. 

Instead of mass producing self right- 



eousness, it seems we could all learn the 
meaning of patience and cooperation. 
When two factions clash, instead of both 
trying to be the top one, one should 
realise he is the lower one and try to pen- 
etrate the walls by peaceful means instead 
of force. One should try to strive to be 
accepted and once accepted, work from 
there to change minds, meanwhile others 
are coming in through the hole that one 
person made. It takes a long time, per- 
haps a century, but if it's worth it, then 
time becomes irrelevant. Perhaps you 
won't see it happen but at least you can 
make it easier for your descendants 
rather than harder. 

As to which ene should submit, I shall 
say both should, but we know how great 
pride is and here is the other problem. No 
one wants to swallow their pride, and 
until they do then groups will always 
unite to destroy other groups, and null' 
tarism will always be around. 

It doesn't take much to kill a man- 1 ' 
never has. Humans are very tender. St a ' 
tistics show how easily the human bod) 
can be destroyed, and it gets easier wit" 
every scientific breakthrough, but it tak 
more than what we have to destroy 1 
idea once it is firmly embedded.

a bly surprised to find something unusual 
happening: the lights were low and 
candles flickered while a group of people 
sat around on the floor listening to a girl 
with a guitar. The girl was Jane Garlock 
a nd the occasion was the Fust of hope- 
fully many more such experiences- "the 
informal concert series: an experiment," 
informally sponsored by Sigma Alpha 
lota. 

Jane's program on February 19 in- 
cluded contemporary folk-style music 
by Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon, as 
well as two songs of her own composi- 
tion. The 60 people in the lounge that 
evening really enjoyed it and someone 
was heard to remark "Why don't they do 
this more often?" Jane is a freshman 
music major. On March 1 1 the second 
concert of the series was presented by 
Cathy Mason, a junior English major 
who has a special interest in Classical

guitar. Cathy's program was presented 
in the chapel lecture hall. 

No more programs have been sched- 
uled at this time but SAI is looking for 
people who would be willing to par- 
ticipate in a concert series of this type, 
individuals or groups sharing their mu- 
sic with the rest of us in an informal 
setting. If you have a special interest in 
music and would like to participate or if 
you know of anyone with a special talent 
who might like to do something, you 
are invited to contact Marilyn Graves 
(122 Vickroy) or any member of SAI 
for details. 

The aim of an experiment of this 
type is to give us all an opportunity to 
hear the work of some of the talented 
musicians in our midst, to hear what 
they have to say. In the process we may 
get to hear some music we do not have 
a chance to hear often, share some 
common human experience, and at the 
very least have something to do on a 
Friday night.

What can I write that will not be re- 
dundant? After all, everyone who attend- 
ed the concert presented by violin vir- 
tuoso Yehudi Menuhin will surely attest 
to the greatness of the man. His mastery 
of the instrument is unquestioned, as it 
has been since his debut with the New 
York Philharmonic in 1927 at the age of 
eleven; his ability to capture an audience 
was graphically presented on Friday, Feb- 
ruary 26, 1971 at the Hershey Community 
Theatre, where the audience sat silently 
between movements as the master carved 
his way through a succession of three 
sonatas and five short pieces, as well as 
an encore, with slashing movements of 
the bow. The music seemed to flow not 
so much from the violin as from the man 
himself; the instrument functioned as a 
part of Menuhin 's body, a second, in- 
credibly eloquent voicebox totally con- 
trolled by its owner. His body swayed 
with the emotion of his musical moods, 
rapidly gyrating during brilliant allegros, 
returning to almost statuesque position, 
totally devoid of motion, for antantes or 
adagios. The style of his playing contribu- 
ted equally, with his unearthly skill, to 
turn some of the most strictly cerebral 
music ever written into a massive and all 
consuming emotional experience. 

The high point of the program was 
undoubtedly the performance of the 
monumently obstruse and difficult So- 
nata (For Violin Alone), which was 
written especially for Menuhin by Bela 
Bartok, one of the most respected and 
acclaimed composers of this century. 
To the musically illiterate, this number 
would seem to be a vast collection of 
scratching noises and unrhythmically dif- 
ferentiated sound impulses. This is due 
largely to the influence of eastern Euro- 
pean folk music, which is written in 
many modes (scale tone patterns; west- 
ern music uses most commonly the sim- 
ple major and minor modes) which are 
alien to our westernized ears, as well as 
influences from atonal music as written 
by such recent composers as Schoenberg 
and Varese, both of whom were rough- 
ly contemporary, although earlier by a 
few years, with Bartok. The atonal in- 
fluence was most obvious, although due 
to repetition of passages in tonal blocks 
prevents defining the sonata as strictly 
atonal itself. The mad spatterings of 
notes burst like lava from a volcano 
during three of the four passages of this 
work. The most violent of these passages 
was the second, entitled Fuga(risoluto)- 
non troppo vivo, which to the unattuned 
listener must have seemed to be sheer 
chaos. Buried deeply within the evoca- 
tive squealings of the violin's torture, 
however, lay the true genius of the art 
of Bella Bartok. Read on. 

In understanding the difficulty of the 
work and the monumental expertise 
exhibited by Menuhin in presenting his 
virtuoso performance, one should ex- 
amine the methodical constructions Bar- 
tok used to achieve this disorganized 
sound from ordered written messages 
on the staff. Of the mechanics most 
typical to Bartok 's major works, the one 
most often found is that of inverted 
thematic structures. These are familiar 
to any intermediate piano student who 
has studied the Bartok Mikroskosmos 
series of short keyboard exercises and 
melodies. These are used as an exercise 
in independent hand control by many 
teachers. In these works, Bartok opens 
by presenting a simplified theme, often 
in a vague, self-invented mode, usually 
introducing it to one hand at a time. 
Once into the piece, he abruptly changes 
position of the theme, often moving it 
away from the root structure in dissonant 
intervals. He will often build the theme 
upside down, deliberately running two 
themes separated by an octave or less at 
each other head on, or staggering by a 
measure in a sort of cock-eyed round 
of contrapuntal theme structure differ- 
entiating from the root on dissonant ton- 
al levels. In this way, he transforms a 
simple linear theme into a profound, 
fascinating collage of vaguely related 
tones. It is interesting to note here that 
progressive jazz(not to be confused with 



"swing band" jazz), as performed by 
such notables as Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 
Eric Dolphy, and of course John Col- 
trane, has taken many ideas in linear 
improvisation from the works of Bartok. 
Noted keyboard ace Sun Ra and his In- 
terstellar Arkestra are noted for their 
work with Eastern modal concepts, and 
recently the ubiquitous Blood, Sweat 
and Tears have used a direct cut from 
Bartok 's Hungarian Peasant Dances as 
one of five classical and jazz themes in- 
terpolated into their progressive-jazz ver- 
sion of "40,000 Headmen," which was 
originally written by Steve Winwood for 
Traffic. 

In Sonata's second movement, there- 
fore, what Bartok has presented is a 
series of tightly-knit themes, both nor- 
mal and inverted, in a rapid and modal 
setting, which build to a feverish inten- 
sity. What sounded like dissonant chord- 
ing during this movement was actually a 
series of themes being played on differ- 
ent strings simultaneously. As can be 
imagined, this is a most difficult passage 
to play, and its flawless interpretation 
by Menuhin is a lasting tribute to both 
the composer and, even more so, the 
performer. The four movements of the 
work offer little chance for memoriza- 
tion by association with repetitive sec- 
tions; Bartok was a great exponent of the 
school of "orrore repetionis," or horror 
of repetition. Although themes permeate 
his work, they are presented each time 
they are played in a different context. 
Menuhin exhibited a great deal of mem- 
orizing ability by playing such a piece 
without music. Yet he made it seem 
easy. Such is the ability of a master. 

The rest of the program consisted of 
familiar violin works, including the So- 
nata in E Major by Bach, Sonata No. 7 
in C Minor, Opus 30, No. 2 by Beetho- 
ven, and the five short pieces previously 
mentioned. Of these, La Fille aux che- 
veux de lin by Debussy was most mem- 
orable, being a perfect example of the 
composer's inimitable style, filled with 
milky, legato melodies that give his work 
a dream-like quality, rare even for fellow 
Impressionists. 

My major disappointment was that 
Menuhin was summoned back for only 
one encore and was sadly offered no 
standing ovation by the audience. He 
deserved a standing ovation for the Bar- 
tok interpretation alone, but I had hoped 
that the notoriously blase Hershey aud- 
iences would be moved to offer him 
this greatest of artistic salutes at the close 
of his performance at least. Perhaps if 
Hershey area theatre-goers spent less 
time looking at the lavish walls of the 
Community Theatre and more time al- 
lowing themselves to be captured by the 
music, their appreciation of the artists' 
performances would be commensurately 
greater. 

It was, in the last analysis, a bril- 
liant performance, combining phenom- 
inal skill and musical ability with an in- 
terpretive genius unrivaled by any artist. 
But then, with regard to the brilliance 
of Yehudi Menuhin, performances of 
this calibre by him are the accepted 
norm. If you were not in attendance on 
Friday night(Feb. 26), I sincerely pity 
you. 



CINEMA 

by Sue Ann Helm 

The ' Confession, another collabora- 
tion by the creators of Z, is a new ex- 
amination of oppression; this time the 
leftist artists attack their own political 
commitments and processes. In Z the op- 
position was the ideological enemy; but 
Confession exposes the totalitarianism of 
the left under Stalin. It is a first at- 
tempt to expose Stalinism from a leftist 
viewpoint. As a result the film is a, more 
probing study personally and politically 
than was Z which often disintegrates into 
an overly polarized view of both sides; 
the goodies too good and the baddies 
very bad. 

The artistic verterans of Z exhibiting 
their skills once again in Confession in- 
clude director Costa-Gavras, screenwriter 
Jorge Semprun, cameraman Raoul Cou- 
tard, and cutter Francoise Bonnot(who 
won an Oscar for Z). Yves Montand co 
stars with his actual wife, Simone Sig- 
noret, as Artur London and wife. Sem- 
prun 's screenplay is based on the memoirs 



of Artur London who was a Czech gov- 
ernment official indicted as a "Trotsky- 
ist-Titoist-Zionist-bourgeois-nationalist 
traitor and enemy of the Czech people 
and of socialism." There were 13 other 
officials indicted along with London and 
tried in the infamous Slansky trial in 
Prague in 1952. Three defendents in- 
cluding London escaped with sentences 
of life imprisonment while Slansky, the 
leading figure in the trial since he was 
secretary general and then deputy pre- 
mier of the Czech Communist Party, and 
11 others were executed. The Slansky 
trial was the final Stalinist show trial 
and Stalin's recurring purges of Com- 
munist Party leaders terminated in March 
of 1953 with Stalin's death. 

The relation of Noel Field, a former 
employee of the State Department who 
worked with the League of Nations dur- 
ing the Spanish Civil War and then be- 
came a chief administrator of Unitarian 
relief activities in Germany around the 
time of World War II, to the defend- 
ents is of concern since they all had at 
one time known or been aided by him. 
In 1949 Field vanished. He was at this 
time in a Budapest prison and during 
the show trials had been tagged as "an 
American master spy." Hence, any com- 
munists he had come into contact with 
in either Spain or Germany were open 
to suspicion; and indeed, London, him- 
self is forced into "confession" on these 
grounds. As London's chief interrogator 
(Gabriele Fernzetti) explains to him, 
didn't he know the "master spy" Noel 
Field? Hadn't he been susceptible to the 
some influences? So, logically isn't he 
guilty irregardless of his professed ignor- 
ance of Field's spy activities? Hence, 
London who comes from a working 
class background confesses that he stayed 
in Czechoslovakia because he was too 
"bourgeois" and ignorant of proletarian 
desires. He confesses to everything, lie 
upon lie. 

The bulk of the film centers around 
London's interrogation and final con- 
fession. He is abused, humiliated and 
manuvered into false confessions "for 
the good of the Party." His interrogators 
constantly remind him of his duties as 
a loyal party member; and "self-critic- 
ism," they say, is his principal duty. 
Confession then becomes the highest 
type of self-criticism and London suc- 
cumbs as do the other thirteen. 

Costa-Gavras employs techniques sim- 
ilar to those found in Z. The film has a 
fast pace created by terse, quickly mov- 
ing scenes which provide the audience 
with inexhaustable information and in- 
sights into both situation and characters. 
Each scene breaks the way for suceeding 
frames and the effect is one of a gradual 
unfolding. The film commences with 
maximum tension surveillance scenes, 
each adding to a mood of helpless en- 
trapment. London knows he may at any 
time be included in a purge and the 
viewer knows along with London from 
the very start that his time has come. 
His desperation is enhanced by Costa- 
Gavras rapid-fire shots of London being 
openly followed and then abduced. Mid- 
way through the film one discovers that 
London has survived the trial and is re- 
telling his story for some friends in 
France after the thaw. London, then, in 
an attempt, one would think, to demon- 
strate his still strong faith in the party 
writes his life story and plans to have it 
published in Czechoslovakia; but he 
leaves for his publisher on the day Rus- 
sian tanks invade Czech soil. Thsu iron- 
ically, London's book was finally pub- 
lished in Paris and Costa-Gavras makes a 
decisive condemnation by ending his film 
with stills by Chris Marker of Russian 
tanks in the streets of Prague.

WRESTLERS FINISH 



WINNING SEASON 



by Tom Corbett 



In the last wrestling meet of the sea- 
son the Dutchmen grapplers defeated the 
Lions of Albright by a score of 32-8 
losing only one match and forfeiting 
another. Winning by decision for the 
Dutchmen were Steve Grove, 9-0; Al 
Shortell, 8-3; Tom Koons, 8-1; and Jay 
Catherman, 9-3. Winning by falls were 
Mark Fuhrer, Guy Lesser, Mike Probus, 
and Ed Thomas. In this meet Ed Thomas 
set another school record of most career 
points. 

On Friday, March 5 the Dutchman 
wrestled in the 2 day M.A.C. Champion- 
ships at Swarthmore College. In the 
first round Steve Grove, Tom Koons, 
and Ed Thomas drew blanks while the 
rest of the team wrestled. The result 
.was that only those three men con- 
tinued in competition on Friday night. 
Ed Thomas was the only man for the 
Valley to reach the final round and 
he took a second place. 

This year's edition of the Lebanon 
Valley matmen was the first winning 



CHESS CLUB 

The lusty knights, LVC's flying chess 
team, has won in its match with Ship- 
pensburg 3-2, as a fitting sequel to its 
4-1 victory over Dickinson at the end 
of first semester. 

The Knights include Glenn Beidel, 
Bob Sipe, G. W. Schriber, M. Birang 
and Mike Dortch. Alternates are Bill 
Howard, Bill Phifer, Ted Ligenza, Ann 
Cardimona, Joe Zearfoss, Rich Hefner 
and Sue Rich. 

The chess club reminds all persons 
that there are chess sets and clocks in 
Carnegie Lounge for anyone who wishes 
to play. Also a reminder to all persons 
avidly or passionally interested in chess: 
the Chess Club meets on Wednesday 
nights at 7:30 in Carnegie Lounge. 

Forest fires burn 
more than trees 



one in a few years with a record of 
7-4-2. Individual records for the 1970-71 
season in dual meets were: Steve Grove, 
10-3; Mark Fuhrer, 3-5. Guy Lesser, 
6-5-1; Howie Snyder, 1-3; Doren Lea- 
thers, 4-7-1; Mike Probus, 9-3; Alan 
Shortell, 3-2-1; Tom Koons, 10-2-1; Jay 
Catherman, 7-6; and senior co-captain 
Ed Thomas, 9-1. 

Ed, the only senior on the team, 
after 4 years of wrestling holds many 
of the school's records: 

Most career points-153 

Most team points for a season-56 

Most career falls— 23 

Most falls in one season -8 

Most consecutive falls— 6 
His record over 4 years was 34-6-1 and 
in the last 24 dual matches he lost 
only one and that was by default. 



It was annouced that Coach Petrofes 
will become the new Director of Ath- 
letics. 




PROJECT 
TRIP 



by Linda Honodel and Jane Keebler 

There were 40 people participating in 
Project's first winter retreat, held Feb- 
ruary 5,6, and 7, at The Robbins Farm 
in the Poconos. 

After a great deal of misdirection 
(involving two bars and a narrow bridge 
across a creek) the bus arrived at the 
Farm which is located near the Camel- 
back ski resort. 

Bob Brandt and Dave Shellenberger 
assigned everyone to housing units (6-7 
per unit) and told us that all meals would 
be served in one very small kitchen. 

Planned activities (all of which were 
optional) included viewing and discussion 
of two movies, "Hey, Hey, Billy Ray," 
and "Night in Fog," both of which dealt 
with atrocities committed in war. Sun- 
day morning participants were invited to 
attend a modern communion service 
which proved very inspirational. 

Other activities during the weekend 
were ice skating, and skiing, but the 
overall favorites were snowmobiling and 
tobogganning. 

Hero of the weekend was Stan Janiak 
who managed to rescue four toboggan- 
loads of people who overshot the hay 
bales and guarded all the luggage on the 
way home. 

The Project members would like to 
thank Mrs. Ott and Mr. and Mrs. Stare 
who acted as chaperones for the week- 
end, which everyone agreed was an un- 
qualified success. 



by Tom Corbett 

On Saturday night, March 6, 1971, 
the Lebanon Valley Basketball team won 
the Southern Division of the Middle At- 
lantic Conference with an 100 to 68 
win over Johns Hopkins at Moravian 
College. This win was preceeded by a 
dramatic last second win over P.M.C. the 
night before by a score of 64-63. In the 
P.M.C. game the Valley was faced with 
a determined team that threw a tight 
defense at the Valley and kept Donnie 
Johnson under 20 points. The Dutch- 
men were behind most of the game and 
with 4 seconds left they were down by 
1 point. On an inbounds play Chip Etter 
took a shot that rimmed the basket and 
started to fall out when Kris Linde tap- 
ped the ball in with the buzzer going 
off just as he let go of the ball. This 
game saw Steve Mellini score 16 points 
and 7 rebounds. Chip Etter came in to 
wake up a sluggish Valley team and 
scored 14 points and 7 rebounds. Kris 
Linde, the last second hero, had 14 
points and 7 rebounds. Donnie Johnson 
scored 11 points, 12 rebounds and 
George Petrie had 7 points and 4 re- 
bounds. Ed Iannarella had 2 points while 
guiding the team on the court. 

Later that night Johns Hopkins de- 
feated first place Muhlenberg, in a close 
contest, to enter the Saturday night 
finals. 

Saturday night was a different story 
for the Valley -scoring wise. After a slow 
start ofr both teams, 6 points in 4 min- 
utes, the Valley took over the ball game 
and once they took the lead they held 
it. At one point in the half the Dutch- 
men led by 14, but at the half the lead 



was cut to 9 points. Then in the second 
half the Valley cagers blew JohnsHopkins 
right out of the gym. The style of play 
that helped the Valley win their last 7 
regular season games returned and Coach 
Gaeckler's men outplayed and out-hus- 
tled the Blue Jays of Hopkins. 

As each starter left the court, as 
substitutes were called in, a standing ova- 
tion was given by the huge and appre- 
ciative Valley crowd. Then with one 
minute left to play a strange cheer was 
was heard(strange, that is, for Valley 
basketball followers' ears). "We're num- 
ber one? We're Number One! WE'RE 
NUMBER ONE!"Then the view of senior 
Steve Mellini cutting down the net at 
the Valley basket made this 1970-71 
Cinderella team seem all the more un- 
believable. It was hard to comprehend 
that we were the Champions in basket- 
ball after 9 losing seasons in a row. 

The statistics for the Hopkins game 
are as follows: Ed Iannarella 3 points, 1 
rebound; Kris Linde 20 points, 10 re- 
bounds; Donnie Johnson 33 points, 16 
rebounds; Steve Mellini 10 points, 10 re- 
bounds; George Petrie 15 points, 7 re- 
bounds; Chip Etter 13 points, 1 rebound; 
John Mardula 4 points; Pete Harubin 5 
rebounds; Rod Shane 1 rebound; George 
Schwarz 2 points. 

The Valley basketball season is now 
complete with a record of 19-5, a win- 
ning streak of the last nine games, and 
The Southern Division crown of the M. 
A. C. With the team only losing senior 
Steve Mellini, the Valley could well be- 
come a strong basketball power in the 
M. A. C. for a long time to come. Con- 
gratulations to the team and to Coach 
Gaeckler.

Annville and school when I realized 
that John and Ulrich and Gordie and I 
were visiting a Brigadoon where every- 
body wakes up each day and realizes that 
it is the first day in the endings of their 
lives and they go to work at the Animal 
Trap Company and Morgan Paper even 
though it is really January 20, 1953 or 
November 22, 1963. (A man at the Twin 
Kiss said that Kennedy belonged dead 
anyway and drank his root beer as his wife 
hanged herself from the shower curtain 
rod.) Gordie thinks she is nice anyway 
and if the other guys like her, why 
should I abandon them. They don't 
even drive hot cars or wear bellbottoms 
some say but a backhoe in the yard is 
good enough for me. Jesus Christ was 
crucified from the sculpted cross inside 
the new Lutheran Church and nobody 
noticed as the blood dripped on the 
minister's vestment and the girl guitarist 
sang "Bridge Over Troubled Water" out 
of tune. The flowers on General Sutter's 
grave died during the summer after Mem- 
orial Day when I flew a kite in my yard 
and watched as Kean enlisted and my 
grandmother died and the new sewers 
were built and my hat was stolen at 
Confirmation classes "by blond-haired but-

Dad that I did not relate well to the 
rest of the class. My mother cried be- 
cause the class picture was ruined. 
Lititz bakgd pretzels and watched me 
scoot around with love in my arm as 
Gordie drove his green Mercedes-Benz. 
It was nice. There were a lot of sink 
holes from poor sewer connections, 
though, and loose stones. 

But even now, as I think about going 
back next weekend, I can't laugh at all-

WASHINGTON, D. C.(CPS)-As the war in Southeast Asia moves into 
j ts eleventh year, the Pentagon reports that 871,689 military personnel 
have lost their lives in the conflict. 

The figure includes 44,459 U.S. casualties, 121,871 ARVN deaths, 
4,301 from other Western nations. North Vietnamese and PRG casual- 
ties are set at 701 ,058. 

All of these figures are suspect, however, because the counting pro- 
cedures are unreliable. Also, the Pentagon has recently been caught 
manipulating the figures to influence U. S. public opinion.

In today's materialistic goal-oriented 
world it is very hard for many kids to 
find a place for themselves within socie- 
ty. In fact, it is hard for most people not 
only to find but also to maintain them- 
selves. This is just as true in Lebanon 
County as anywhere else in the country. 

With the aim of lightening the load 
that all of us must carry or at least 
to let people know that there are others 
who care about their struggles, a group 
in Lebanon has emerged. Known as 
Together Inc. this group has established 
itself along the lines of serving others in 
need. 

Together's most visable service is the 
Phone Volunteers. These are people who 
will receive calls from anyone who has 
a problem that he would like to discuss. 
The Phone Volunteers have been pre- 
pared for two months to talk to people 
and aid in just about any problem that 
they might encounter. The volunteers 
are prepared to discuss personal emotion- 
al problems whether related to drugs, 
family or whatever. 

If the volunteers cannot help you or 
you need more help than they can give, 
they have files at their disposal that are 
set up with information on drugs, birth 
control, legal advise, educational op- 
portunities, abortions, draft counseling, 
and medical services. The volunteers can 
refer you to the right person, for exam-

Together hopes there will be much 
use of this service for it is evident to 
anyone who knows the area that there 
are many troubled people especially in 
regard to drug abuse. 

The number for Together is 272-9334 
and presently the hours are: Sunday- 
Thursday -noon to midnight and Friday i 
and Saturday -noon to 4 a.m. Hope- 
fully the service will be extended to 
24 hours, 7 days a week when enough 
trained volunteers are secured. 

Several Valley students are involved 
as phone volunteers including Jim Reb- 
horn, Pam Brown, Bob Weiler, George 
Efstration, Dominick Duso and Diane 
Seegert. If any other students are inter- 



ested in being a volunteer they should 
contact any one of these people. The 
rest of the volunteers are made of peo- 
ple between the ages of 17 and 25 
who live in Lebanon. 

Together is also involved in other 
programs. One is a free university in 
which volunteer teachers are being re- 
cruited. Also there is a counseling ser- 
vice which is related to the phone ser- 
vice with the individual seeking help 
stopping by Together in person. Again 
anyone interested please contact To- 
gether. Together is located on the second 
floor of the Firestone store one block 
north of Cumberland on 9th street. 

To anyone in trouble there is now 
someone who cares and who will listen 
and try to help.

WASHINGTON, D. C.(CPS)-Enrollment in the Reserve Officers 
Training Corps in 1970 dropped to its lowest since 1947 the Pentagon 
reports. In 1968, there were 212,470 enlistees, in 1969 a total of

colleges where ROTC is complusory dropped from 122 to 48. 



Committee Discusses Drugs 



Palestinian Gives Arab View 



by Martin Hauserman 

The Student Affairs Committee met 
on Monday, March 15 with six of the 
members present. Chairman Capt. Cooper 
submitted a proposal for a drug abuse 
Prevention program. The purpose of the 
Program would be to 1) Reduce or 
eliminate the influence of drugs on cam- 
P u s 2) Assist drug users through coun- 
seling 3) Cooperate with civil authorities 
•n prosecution to control drug trafficing. 

The procedure of the program would 
oe to l) Provide speakers, films, work- 
tops, etc. to educate the student body 
faculty about drug use 2) Provide 
counseling for those who seek aid and 
jhose who are recommended by others 
3 ) Organize a security system by which 
JfPorts on suspected drug users or traf- 
" ce rs can be channeled to a drug coun- 
selor 4) Establish a liason with civil 
au thorities to insure a cooperative effort 
to reduce drug use and trafficing on 
Ca mpus. 

Chairman Cooper indicated that Leb- 
an ° n Valley needed, if anything an edu- 
Ca tional program about drugs-since no 
0ne is knowledgeable in that area. The 
e *tent of the drug problem, moreover is 
Un known although the committee agreed

Cooper adjourned the meeting 



at this point in order that the committee 
members might think about it. It was 
decided that Dr. Kilgore and a person 
knowledgeable about drugs would be in- 
vited to the next meeting to help the 
committee with the program. 

All students with suggestions or opin- 
ions on this subject are encouraged to 
express their ideas to their student re- 
presentatives: Dave Snyder, Marty Hau- 
serman, and Mike Morrison. 

La Vie has recently been notified by 
the Department of Health, Education, 
and Welfare that support is available for 
"innovative college and university-based 
drug education programs. " Provisions are 
that the program must emphasize pre- 
vention and must be "initiated, designed 
and directed by students, "-ed. 



by Rich Thompson 

Nafez Abdullah, a professor in the 
Mid-Eastern Studies Department at York 
College, charged recently that the state 
of Israel has no right to exist, and crit- 
icized United States' support for Israel. 

"Why does a democratic country turn 
around and support a racist state-a state 
for Je\vs only?" he asked. 

On campus March 15, he was the first 
of two scheduled speakers on the Middle 
East crisis, sponsored by Pi Gamma Mu. 
The other speaker, Zvi Gabay, was sched- 
uled to come from Philadelphia at a later 
date to present the Israeli point of view 
which will be covered in the next issue. 

Abdullah strongly objected to those 
who form their opinions on the Middle 
East without taking into account the his- 
tory of the present conflict. He pointed 
out that in 1948 the Jewish natives owned 
only six per cent of the land in Palestine, 
and that one and one-half million Pales- 
tinians were then uprooted and expelled 
from their land against their will. He said 



Rev. Sullivan, Worker For Black 

Self -Help, To Speak In Chapel 



Because of Easter vacation the next 
issue of La Vie will not be published 
until April 23rd. For this reason we 
would like to publicize a speaker of 
special merit who will be part of the 
Chapel-Convocation program of April 
20th. 

In 1963 Reverend Leon Sullivan was 
cited by Life Magazine as one of the 100 
Outstanding Young Adults in the United 
States. 

Since his coming to Philadelphia in 
1950, the membership of the Zion Bap- 
tist Church has grown from 600 to 
5,000. The activites of the Church in- 
clude a Day Care Center, Federal Credit 
Union, Community Center Program for 
Youth and Adult Activities, Employ- 
ment Agency, Adult Education Read- 
ing Classes, Numerous Athletic Teams, 
Choral Groups and Family Counseling 
Service. 

In 1960 he founded the Zion Home 
for the Retired, one of the finest insti- 
tutions for the care of the aged in Penn- 
sylvania. Reverend Sullivan founded the 



Zion Investment Associates, coming out 
of the membership of the Zion Baptist 
Church and Zion Investment Associates 
has completed development of a Million 
Dollar Garden Apartment Complex, the 
first of its kind in the east, and has 
built a $1.7 Million Dollar Shopping 
Center (Progress Plaza), the largest shop- 
ping center built, owned and operated by 
colored people in America. 

He has recently founded Progress 
Aerospace Enterprises, Inc., a large in- 
dustrial development to involve African 
Americans in the Aerospace Industry, 
and Progress Garment Manufacturing. 
In this program Reverend Sullivan has 
designed it in such a way that profits 
accrue, not only back to investors, but a 
majority of the profits will flow back 
into the community to assist in educa- 
tional and scholarship benefits. The Pro- 
gress Aerospace Enterprises (PAE) is per- 
haps the first sizeable aerospace com- 
munity, self-help enterprise owned and 
administered by colored people in the 
country. 



that the refugees living outside Israeli- 
occupied territory are the rightful inhab- 
itants of Palestine.! 

He added, "We hear so often that 
these refugees were not forced to leave; 
they were asked to leave, and they left of 
their own choice." Supporting his claim 
that the Palestinians did not leave vol- 
untarily, he quoted General Glubb Pasha, 
commander of the Arab Legion in 1948 
and a British officer, as saying, "The 
story that the Arab refugees left volun- 
tarily is not true. Voluntary emmigrants 
do not leave their homes with only the 
clothes they stand in. People who have- 
decided to move ... do not do so in 
such a hurry that they lose other members 
of their family . . . The fact is that the 
jnajority of the Palestinians left in panic 
flight to escape massacres." Abdullah 
added that in one incident in April 1948, 
245 Arab men, women, and children 
were butchered and thrown into a well. 
This, he said, was just one example of 
the atrocites used to force the Arabs to 
leave their homeland. 

He also added that despite United 
Nations' resloutions saying that the Arabs 
should be permitted to return to their 
homes or be compensated for their losses 
if they chose not to do so, the U.N. rec- 
ognized as late as December 1963 that 
these provisions had not been carried out. 

He also flatly rejected Israeli claims 
that Arabs had been asked or ordered to 
leave their land. He quoted a British 
journalist who made an intensive study 
of Arab records, radio broadcasts, and 
interviews with Arab leaders, and who 
also asked the Israelis for documentary 
proof of their claims, as saying that he 
found no evidence of any such order or 
appeal. In fact, this journalist said, there 
were repeated records, of Arab appeals, 
even flat orders, given to the civilians of 
Palestine to stay put, according to Ab- 
dullah. 

Abdullah added, 'To us Palestinians, 
the Israeli occupation of our land and 
homes is a crime committed against the 
very people who have been most tolerant 
toward them throughout the Middle Ages 
as opposed to the West's fanatic intoler- 
ance. Jews throughout history have found 
in the Middle East, among the Arab 
peoples, safety. The feeling of Palestin- 
ians is that we are not going to tolerate 




NAFEZ ABDULLAH 

this injustice. 

"For why should we pay for crimes 
that Germany and the West have com- 
mitted against the Jews? Why should the 
West compensate the Jews, as well as its 
own conscience, through the deprivation 
of our human rights? Try to imagine 
yourself as a Palestinian who suddenly, 
almost overnight, became a homeless ref- 
ugee as the result of political happenings 
neither of his choice nor of his doing. 
For Zionism was created in the West and 
supported by the West in its ultimate 
goal without any consent of the Arab 
owners of Palestine." 

Asked what he saw as a solution to 
the present crisis, he said that the only 
"rational" one was "to creat, in Pales- 
tine, which was essentially an Arab state, 
a secular, national democratic Palestine 
for everybody." He pointed out that 
prior to Israel's creation, Palestine was 
inhabited by Palestinian Arabs, Palestin- 
ian Muslims and Palestinian Jews. He ad- 
ded that for "a state such as the state of 
Israel to survive on the basis of Judaism 
is against democracy. I cannot believe 
that any Jew in the world can be per- 
mitted to go there and become a citizen 
because his mother is Jewish, while I was 
born there, my parents built their homes

Academic Interest 



What is a college education? Has higher education become so in- 
fluenced by mass society that a person merely has to attend and pass 
the required number of courses to be considered college educated? On 
Lebanon Valley campus it would seem that the minimum is. satisfactory. 
A number of the departments and clubs have been presenting consis- 
tently a variety of programs for the benefit of the whole campus. An 
especially good program was the speaker for the Arab side in the Mid- 
dle East crisis(which is covered on page one). Mr. Abdullah was a dy- 
namic speaker— and very persuasive. However, students attending(about 
20)were almost outnumbered by faculty and members of the commun- 
ity. The Israeli speaker was better attended but again mostly by the 
community. 

In addition, the Chapel-Convocation programs have been greatly im- 
proved. Going to these events proves somewhat embarrassing when you 
look around at all the empty seats. Despite your position for or against 
our "honor # system," there is no reason to miss good speakers just be- 
cause it is now possible to "get out" of attending. 

It is unfortunate to think of all the possibilities that are available to 
the students and still we hear the constant cry that there is nothing to 
do. Alright, maybe you are not interested in Arab speakers,or physicists 
or classical recitals, but the problem is that most of the campus is not 
interested in anything. Lebanon Valley is billed as a liberal arts college. 
The idea is to get a well-rounded education. If our present trend a- 
gainst anything academic continues, receiving a degree here will begin to 
mean less and less. 

Drug Education 

There is at the present time a discussion within the Student Affairs 
Committee (see page 1) concerning the establishment of some sort of 
Drug Abuse Program for the Campus. Nothing has been decided yet. 
Now is the time for students — since this measure will affect them — 
to find out about the proposals and to ask questions. Make your opin- 
ions known to the committee. You do have student representation on 
this committee. 

It would be most interesting to inquire into what powers this com- 
mittee has been allocated and into what areas their affairs jurisdiction 
extends. It would be well for students to find out about this program 
and exert their influence before it becomes part of the established' 
bureaucracy. 



Exile Views Red Progress 



by Jim Katzaman 

Dr. Ferenc Nagy, who rose from the 
ranks of gestapo prisoners in 1942 to be- 
come the Prime Minister of Hungary 
from 1946 until he was forced into ex- 
ile by the communists in 1947, spoke 
in Chapel last week. Having had first 
hand knowledge about and dealings with 
communists, he was well qualified to 
speak on his topic, "Communism and 
World Revolution." 

He immediately refuted the idea that 
communists are at the root of all dom- 
estic and world unrest. Because of peo- 
ple's general knowledge about commun- 
ism he doubted that a communist revolu- 
tion could take hold in this or any other 
country. Communists, he said, rely more 
on outside oppression than they do on 
internal revolution. "Communists do not 
have much to do with revolution. There 
are very few communist regimes which 
can claim that they came into being 
through a revolution of the people." 

Pursuing his thesis, he listed three 
factors that are obstacles to a predicted 
communist revolution: 

Political- As the Sino-Soviet conflict 
has shown, if ideological differences are 
weighed against national interests, na- 
tional interests will prevail. As Dr. Nagy 
said, "The Sino-Soviet conflict is based 
on the sharply opposing national inter- 
ests of two large nations-Russia and Chi- 
na. 

Economic-It is not fair to compare 
the present Soviet economy to that of 
the czars because in the last 53 years 
the economy of every nation has risen. 
He pointed out that with the exception 
of Czechoslovakia, all the communist na- 
tions have experienced failures in agri- 
cultural programs. When developing na- 
tions see this, they turn away from com- 
munism as a possible form of govern- 
ment. 

Attitudes of Intellectuals and Youth- 
This is the key factor. More intellectuals 
realize that communism is not the rev- 
olutionary and progressive system it was 
believed to be 15-20 years ago. In fact, 
it is obsolete. 

An interesting irony seems to appear 
when you compare the present Ameri- 
can attitude towards intellectuals and 
youth with that of the communist coun- 
tries. In the United States there is a 



INTIMATION 



by AL SCHMICK 



The March 15 edition of the New 
York Times contained a rather interest- 
ing sketch of an interview with one of 
the molecular biologists who won the 
Nobel Prize in medicine for 1965. 
Jacques Monod is his name and he pre- 
sented a basic outline of his thesis of 
human existence and scientific endeavor 
to writer John C. Hess. 

Monod 's book is entitled he Hazard 
et La Necessite or Chance and Necessity 
in English. In it he attempts to show 
that "all forms of life are the products 
of pure chance-through unpredictable 
mutation-and of necessity, or Darwinian 
selection." The upshot of this position 
is that man is "alone in the indifferent 
immensity of the universe whence he 
emerged by chance." 

Mr. Monod 's view comes as a result 
of his investigations into genetics, but 
even more, from his observations of the 
course that science has been taking for 
years-which, according to Monod, is 
leading men to a position where they 
have to acknowledge the source of their 
existence in a "roll of the dice," a mere 



chance occurance. This view makes it 
impossible, according to the Frence sci- 
entist, to hold a belief in some sort of 
meaningful plan or purpose in the uni- 
verse. 

Religions that hold man in central 
importance, or economic theories that 
believe in a plan of history that is inevi- 
table (especially Marxism), are incompat- 
ible with the emerging view, according 
to Monod. The latter he sees as linked 
with the old quest for a bond of nature 
and man that will culminate in a Utopia. 
This animistic outlook assumes that man 
is served by the natural order. 

Mr. Monod points out that this de- 
sire to lmk man with nature has been 
the driving force behind most all modern 
philosophical thought, and that these ef- 
forts are an attempt to forge anew the 
"ancient alliance" with basic animistic 
thought. 

Mr. Monod believes that the attempt 
to derive the "ought" from the "is" is 
futile. If man is alone, as Monod seems 
to think, then he is free to choose what- 
ever ethical system he wants. Man must

great fear among many adults that to 
follow the course proposed by the young 
people will inevitably lead down the 
road to communism. However, accord- 
ing to Dr. Nagy, in the communist coun- 
tries there is a fear that the youth will 
drive the people to democracy. The U.S. 
considers the young people to be leftists 
while the communist countries consider 
them to be rightists. Perhaps to the left 
of the United States and to the right of 
Russia lies the goal of government. 

The intellectuals on both sides of the 
iron curtain have similar ideas. A Russian 
intellect, Andrey Sakherov, has listed in 
an essay the three main threats to the 
survival of mankind: nuclear war, pollu- 
tion, and over-population, concepts not 
foreign to the western world. Dr. Nagy 
concluded his address by saying, "Amer- 
icans are needed to prevent ultimate dis- 
asters and keep the condition of the 
world in a state in which the intellectuals 
of the communist world will prevail over 
their oppressors. 

Many former government leaders now 
in exile take on a role similar to that 
of a once-powerful leader of China now 
leading his exiled government on the is- 
land of Formosa. Every year he says he 
will return to the mainland and re-con- 
quer his country from the communists 
in the name of democracy. But every 
year nothing happens. As recently as 
1960, the major political parties of the 
U.S. included clauses in their campaign 
platforms promising the liberation of 
communist ruled countries. These are 
just a couple of examples of many cases 
in which people build up false hopes for 
public consumption and the only ones 
who suffer are the people who are let 
down. Feelings of world powers and ex- 
iled leaders towards the repatriation of 
communist countries and other totali- 
tarian nations run from ridiculous to fan- 
atical-if the two can be separated. 

Dr. Nagy is a realist in that he is fully 
aware of the chances of liberating his 
native Hungary as it lies squarely in the 
shadow of Russia. He does not have 
much hope for a settlement anywhere 
in the future. After his address he was 
asked the trite question— 

"Dr. Nagy, do you think youll live 
to see the day when you can return to a 
free Hungary?" 

"I don't know; I don't know how 
long IH live." 



make a choice to defeat pessimism and 
he must be willing to coordinate his ef- 
forts to make his meaning known to all. 

The French Nobelist points to a need 
for a "humanistic socialism" to eradicate 
the threat of nuclear destruction and to 
guarantee a decent life for all. 

Jacques Monod has not advocated 
anything totally new. Certain thinkers, 
such as Camus, (who was a good friend 
of Monod) have advocated a freedom of 
choice in values for some time. What is 
particularity of relevance in Monod 's 
statement is that it does not assign real 
importance to the grand intellectual 
superstructure which baffle men with 
qualification and ambiguity -and contra- 
diction. 

We don't have to look very far to 
see - how. confused people become when 
their experiences must be categorized 
and weighted precisely in a pre-adopted 
system which does not account for man's 
freedom to choose. The scientific per- 
spective brought to the forum of inquiry 
by Monod does give meaning to the 
"freedom" viewpoint, as we all must see 
the ultimate of material being in this 
world, as it lays the basis for action in 
non-material realm. 

The thought of Jacques Monod is not 
truly revolutionary; it need not be 
thought of as such. Observation has led 
to ethical stagnation. For Monod, there 
is no contradiction between science and 
ethics-ultimately, we will have to make 
our own ethics.

Rabbi Lectures 



On Monday, March 15, Rabbi Steven 
Glazer, of the Synogogue Beth-Israel in 
Lebanon presented a lecture before Dr. 
Perry J. Troutman's Religion 22 class. 
The lecture concerned the discussion of 
the Jewish culture and its development 
in the United States, thus coinciding 
with current studies within the class on 
the role of Judaism in American Cul- 
ture. 

Rabbi Glazer, 27, is in his first year 
at Beth-Israel, having recently been or- 
dained. In this capacity, he serves as 
religious leader and councilor for the 
entire Jewish community in Lebanon 
and surrounding areas. He describes 
himself as a member of the Conserva- 
tive Tradition of Rabbinical teaching, 
although he remarked that by the stan- 
dards of many older Jews he is rather 
liberal. 

Rabbi Glazer's lecture included ex- 
planations of the power structure of 
the Jewish faith(which in fact is prac- 
tically non-existant, according to his re- 
marks), the recent development of Re- 
formed and Conservative Judaism as op- 
posed to the more traditional Orthodox 
teachings, and a question and answer 
period in which he responded to queries 
from the group in attendence concern- 
ing any area of Jewish tradition or 
velopment.

Yugoslavian 
Chorus Sings 

One of Europe's oldest, most dis- 
tinguished choruses, The Branko Krsman- 
ovich Chorus of Yugoslavia, will pre- 
sent a program on Monday, March 29 
as the last event in the Great Artist 
Series. The concert will be held at 8:15 
at the Hershey Community Theatre. 

This chorus of 80 mixed voices is 
making their second tour of the Urjited 
States. In the fall of 1960 they toured 
North America to great critical praise. 
Their program is a mixture of choral 
music -from classic to romantic and con- 
temporary. Each performance ends with 
the wearing of the colorful, traditional 
costumes of Yugoslavia for the presenta- 
tion of the rhythms and harmonies of 
Slavic folk music. 

Among other honors the chorus has 
been awarded prizes at the World Festi- 
val Vienna in 1959 and the World Fes- 
tival Moscow, 1957. 

The Branko Krsmanovich Chorus is 
conducted by Bogdan Babich who has 
also conducted for the Belgrade opera 
and leading symphony orchestras in Yu- 
goslavia and other European countries. 



Comic Tragedy in Three Battles 



CINEMA 

by Sue Ann Helm 

The 1970 Comic Tragic Epic has 
arrived] and like Arthur Penn's two other 
major films, Bonnie and Clyde and 
Alice's Restaurant, this film marries man- 
kind's humorous foibles with shocking 
brutality. As in Bonnie and Clyde, Penn 
makes the most of his blood baths; in 
both films sticky red dribbles with real- 
istic horror and the audience is envolved 
with the humanity of the victims through 
exposure to the victims everyday mis- 
takes and living processes. This film tries 
to grab all the Old West it can stand and 
to a considerable extent it is successful 
particularly through Jack Crabb's many 
white man vs. Indian encounters. Gro- 
tesque exaggerations of white life appear 
and disappear throughout the film only 
to return at some later time in renewed 
crazed caricature, ending 9 times out of 
10 in degradation and blood. The epi- 
tome of this trend occuring in the cli- 
max with madman Custer preaching 
white superiority and death for the in- 
fidels. 

Little Big Man stars Dustin Hoff- 
man as Jack Crabb (Little Big Man) and 
Chief Dan George as Old Lodge Skins, 
Hoffman's adopted Cherokee Grand- 
father. Both performers turn in a human 
yet gently humerous performance that at 
times seems almost profound inspite of 
the light tone predominating in most 
of the comedy scenes. One simply beau- 
tiful scene (that compensates a hundred 
fold for the shallow and irritating Oaster 
scene at the end of the film) involves Old 
Lodge Skins who throughout represents 
the ancient not quite all knowing father 
who guides his people "the Human 
Beings" in the best way he can. Al-' 
ways his people., must look upon all 
things, the earth, stones, trees, as living 
comrades sharing the same plains and 
forests together. Yet, the old chief knows 
that his way of life cannot last; theirs 
is a dying civilization. At any rate, the 
old father who during a heartless white 
raid had previously been blinded, sup- 
posedly has been called to the Did 
Burial Ground on a huge bluff to meet 
with the Great Spirit and in true Indian 
fashion meet his decayed ancestral rela- 
tives. Thus, Little Big Man and the Old 
Campaigner leave the camping grounds 
and weeping squaws to begin their as- 
cent. At any rate, the old chief is so en- 
dearing, wise, and paternal that one in- 
stantly prepares for another great all time 
Indian flick cliche; that is the chief's 
foreknowledge of his . own death and 
the ensuing dramatic mountain top re- 
lease of spirit from body usually amidst 
gathering storm clouds and flashes of 
gothic lightening. Penn plays the whole 
trick up to the very last father-son 
goodbyes and then, old chief stretched 
on ground, cloud in sky, thunder in 
background, rain begins to fall and 
splash pathetically into the Old Man's 
Eyes. He and the audience endure the 
inconsiderate weather for several incre- 
dible seconds when finally, he raises his 
head toward the expectant Little Big 
Man. "Well my son, sometimes the ma- 
gic works and sometimes it doesn't." 
Hence, in pouring rain old man arid

grandson flee the now muddy burial 
grounds and return to camp. It is just 
this use of things going wrong or not 
quite working out that brings this film 
so close to real humanness; and Penn's 
ability both to play humanity up for its 
own comedy and to distort his characters 
just enough to make them realistic cari- 
catures makes this film enjoyable and 
worthwhile. 

Other notables who appear shortly 
again and again and add to Jack's white 
adventrues are Wild Bill Hickock, Buf- 
falo Bill Cody, Faye Dunaway as a 
preacher's estrous wife later cat house 
inhabitant , and Martin Balsam as a slow- 
ly whittling away con man. The only 
really bad sequence in the film unfor- 
tunately occurs at the climax of the 
film and is further inhibited by Richard 
Mulligan's performance as General Cus- 
ter. The ending is indeed quite badly 
botched and tends to act as an anti- 
climax forcing the preceeding, beauti- 
fully done carnage scene at the Chero- 
dee Village into a climactic role, rather 
misorienting for the viewer but not fatal 
at all. 



RECORDS 



by Ben Neideigh 

This review will consist of a series of 
micro-reviews, due to the fact that a 
great many review-worthy records, both 
good and bad, have been released since 
the first of the year. The reviews will be 
graded accordingly: There will be three 
groupings, Excellent (buy the record im- 
mediately -it's great), Acceptable (buy it 
if you want, but don't waste money on 
it if you really can't afford it), and Rot- 
ten (Don't even consider it unless your 
arch-enemy has a birthday coming up). 
In addition, a merit-star system will be 
used, the asterisks after the album's 
name indicating quality in points from 
zero to five (lowest to highest). This is 
for those of you who are too hurried to 
read the rest of the review. With that in 
mind . . . 

Group One (Excellent): 

Mark— Almond (Blue Thumb BTS 
8827):*****. This is perhaps the finest 
jazz-blues-folk music that I have ever 
heard. The nucleus of the group is form- 
ed from Jon Mark and Johnny Almond, 
former acoustic guitarist and reed man 
respectively for John Mayall's experi- 



mental no-drums blues band, circa 1969. 
While that band proved little and was 
often quite boring and repetitive, this 
band is incredibly free and innovative. 
Backed by Tommy Eyre on Keyboards 
and Rodger Sutton on Fender bass, the 
pair glides gracefully through the album's 
five elongated cuts, blending beautifully 
for mellow passages, such as in the gos- 
pel-like "The Ghetto," or wailing through 
free-wheeling reed solos on the album's 
two longest segments, "The City" (11 
minutes, 30 seconds), and "Love" (11 
minutes, 49 seconds), backed rhythmi- 
cally by only occasional congas or hand 
percussion, played alternately by each 
member of the band during another's 
solo. Believe me, however, that the con- 
ventional drums are not at all missed. 
This band has taken the formula Mayall 
had attempted to validate and succeeded 
where he failed, by simply breaking from 
the strict basic-blues Mayall format and 
spreading out a bit. No matter what your 
musical tastes happen to be, this album 
will prove to be quite satisfying. 

Pearl, by Janis Joplin (Columbia KC 
30322):*****. This is Janis Joplin's 
swan song. And in keeping with tradi- 
tion, it is far and away her best work. 
Perhaps she knew the message the album 
had to convey when it was recorded, 
that it must show the world the tired, 
heart-sick soul of the Raggedy-Ann girl 
with the air-raid siren in her throat. Whe- 
ther or not Miss Joplin actually did is of 
course open to conjecture, but the record 
is an undeniable tableau of her personal 
dilemma irregardless of intent. She is 
both poignantly mellow, on especially 
the cuts entitled "A Woman Left Lone- 
ly," 'Trust Me," and "Half Moon," and 
incredibly raw, especially on "Move 
Over" and the a cappella "Mercedes- 
Benz." This album is the blues, plain and 
simple. It is a cry for humanity to an 
audience that is all too often demanding, 
cold, and thus quite inhuman. During 
her sad lifetime it sold records but fell on 
deaf ears. People will listen now, mostly 
because the radios are pushing "Me and 
Bobby McGee" (also on the album) so 
mercilessly, showing the sickness of the 
industry. It makes me want to scream 
every time I hear it sandwiched between 
The Osmond Brothers and the latest well- 
scrubbed Creedence hit. Who would listen 
if I would, though?

CONCERT CHOIR STARTS TOUR 



The Lebanon Valley College Concert 
Choir and Chamber Orchestra marked 
a historical milestone when it became 
the institution's first performing group 
to appear at New York's 1500-seat Town 
Hall on Sunday, March 21. The per- 
formance was under the direction of Dr. 
Pierce A. Getz, who has directed the 
Concert Choir since 1961. 

The Town Hall appearance comes 
during the Choir's annual spring tour 
which began on March 19 and will run 
through March 27. Concerts will be per- 
formed in Warminster and Carbondale, 
Pa.; South Bend Brook, Fanwood, and 
Westfield, N.J.; Mastic Beach, Long Is- 
land, N.Y.; W. Hartford and Manchester, 
Conn.; and Melrose and Maiden, Mass. 

The annual Concert Choir campus 
concert will take place on March 28 at 
8:00 p.m. in the College Chapel. It will 
provide local audiences an opportunity 
to hear this outstanding group fresh from 
its 14-performance tour. Tickets are a- 
vailable from any member of the Leb- 
anon Valley College Auxiliary or at the 
door. 

The Concert Choir has been touring

since 1936. The success of its annual 
tour of the Eastern states can be attrib- 
uted primarily to its appeal to a variety 
of audiences in presenting musical litera- 
ture which is pleasing to musicians and 
non-musicians alike. Known especially 
for its tonal versatality in projecting com- 
positional styles of various musical per- 
iods, the group's programs are built a- 
round either a sacred repertoire, or se- 
lections for both a sacred and secular 
nature. 

The Concert Choir is one of the few 
remaining college choirs which performs 
works with chamber orchestra accom- 
paniment in addition to a cappella lit- 
erature. The chamber orchestra has, in 
recent years, become a prominent part of 
the touring organization. 

Having made some 32 appearances 
on NBC national radio broadcasts, the 
Choir's credits include "National Radio 
Pulpit." "Voices on Easter," and "Great 
Choirs of America." Hailed as one of the 
finest choirs to have sung in St. Paul's 
Chapel of Columbia, the Concert Choir 
holds a standing invitation to appear at 
the National Cathedral in Washington, 
D.C.

by David Crosby (Atlantic SD 7203): 
***** ^5 , s t h e good David Crosby, 
who humanized the original Byrds as 
McGuinn kept tightening the screws on 
the machinery that the group eventually 
became, the Crosby who so artfully pro- 
duced Joni Mitchell's first serene excur- 
sion as the full-fledged genius that she is. 
This is not the jolly, laugh-a-minute 
Crosby of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and 
Young. No longer is he Stephen Still's 
rhythm guitarist. He is now the true 
musician-poet that many suspected him 
to' be, the man who scared McGuinn in- 
to removing him from the Byrds at the 
height of that group's career. Aided by 
the crew of the Jefferson Starship and 
"just about everyone in San Francisco" 
(courtesy C. J. Brown), he has put to- 
gether a shimmering collection of per- 
sonal gems, all wrapped in the most 
beautifully mystical musical package I 
have ever heard. The title doesn't fool 
me. He knows his name. And his art. 

Emerson, Lake, and Pa/me/-(Cotillion 
SD 9040):****. This is the band that 
the Nice, everyone's favorite pretentious 
classical rock band, could have been. The 
extravaganza is herded about by Keith 
Emerson, keyboard ace of the Nice and 
ego supreme, with ex-crimson king Greg 
Lake on bass and guitar and former 
Atomic Rooster Carl Palmer on drums 
serving as his porters for this epic mus- 
ical trek into history. . .but wait!! 
Emerson no longer gushes re-fried Bach 
and Sibelius!! The licks are all his own, 
and dig that crazy Moog synthesizer!! 
And the total sound is very spacey, 
modern, and relevant, just as the reader 
suspects. It is" not gimmicky, despite the 
use of such a trite format. I breathed a 
sigh of relief the first time I played it. 

Tea for the Tillerman, by Cat Stevens 
(A&M SP 4280) :****; If you have heard 
his single, "Wild World "(from this al- 
bum), you know the rest. He is pleasing- 
ly voiced(at least no trite falsetto har- 
monies), a competent musician, and or- 
iginal, leaving no doubt of his off-the- 
moors origin and ancestry. Even his 
treatment of traditional material is fresh 
and valid. Despite the great similarity 
between cuts, this is in general an ex- 
cellent album. I hope he doesn't fall into 
a rut by recording all of his music sim- 
ilarly, though. Even the best folk music 
has its limits. 

Group Two( Acceptable): 
2 Years On, by the Bee Gees(Alco

Watch Out For That Door ! 



by Jim Katzaman 

There is a new winter-spring sport 
taking hold of the vast expanse of the 
LVC campus. It has had sweeping ef- 
fects from one end of the third floor of 
Funkhouser to the other-in fact, it was 
completely swept out of the West end. 
This sport has the potential to become 
one of the most competitive activities on 
the campus since the arrival of the 
freshman girls. What else could it possibly 
be but the grueling and heart-stopping 
Official Skateboard Labyrinth Race-or 
as it is known by its initials— the OBBR, 

OBBR is the brainchild of Bill Buck- 
felder, the highest-scoring member of the 
JV basketball team who has recently 
found himself unemployed. One day, 
while riding his skateboard, he struck on 
the idea of having one person lay down 
on it face-down and have another per- 
son push from behind similar to a wheel 
barrow. The suggestion was immediately 
taken up by Dean Cassidy and Gary 
Hunter who proved that the idea would 
work in dorm hallways. Immediately 
many modifications were introduced into 
the original idea. One of the major 
breakthroughs was Hunter's suggestion 
that it would be possible to race right 
through swinging doors, whether or not 
one put his arms out to cushion the im- 
pact. This and many other new inno- 
vations have put the OBBR in its pre- 
sent form. 

The contestants start at the south- 
east corner of the floor, go through the 
swinging door, turn left into the east- 
west hall, and return to the south-east 
corner where the participants switch posi- 
tions and go over the course again. There 
is an official timer who keeps track of a 



team's position with an accuracy to the 
tenth of a second. 

• Time trials and races have already 
been held between members of the hall 
and even some brave souls from Ham- 
mond who have gone down to bitter de- 
feat at the hands of the present OBBR 
champions, Jeff Floyd and Gary Hunter. 
It was during one of these contests that 
the team of Floyd and Hunter trium- 
phantly lowered the time score set by 
Buckfelder and Cassidy of 1:04.6 to 
l:o4.5. This closeness in times is sym- 
bolic of the competitive nature of the 
sport. 

Anyone who dares to seek adven- 
ture and is not afraid to stare into the 
eyes of certain defeat in the dark laby- 
rinths of the East 200 wing of Funk- 
houser is invited to come and try his 
luck against the experts. These men of 
Funkhouser are of the true sporting mold 
and do not let their special talents go to 
heads. Their basic philosophy about the 
OBBR is "if you've got it, you've got it." 

Is there no one brave enough to step 
forward and submit himself to possible 
humiliation of defeat at the hands of 
Pink Floyd and the Hulk? Will anyone 
dare to try to unseat them from their 
throne? Is anyone in either Hammond, 
Funkhouser, or Kreider better than them? 
Only time -and nerve -will tell. Mean- 
while, the men on the third floor of East 
Funkie stand poised to take on all comers 
who challenge their authority on the 
floors of Funkhouser. The challenge has 
been made to any and all. 

However, girls are asked to give second 
thoughts to their decisions. But the men 
of the hall have said that if some girls 
show up to challenge them, they will be 
encouraged.

President Sadat of Egypt, whereby Israel 
would be recognized by the Arab nations

Abdullah also criticized the Israelis 
for their great concern over Jews in 
Russia, whom they consider to be scien- 
tifically and technologically advanced, 
while neglecting Jews in Northern Africa 
and other areas of the world who have 
wanted to go to Israel but have not been 
accepted. 

He said that the press has made a big 
difference in American attitudes toward 
Israel, in their desire to support struggling 
nations. Americans,he said, are sympathet- 
ic with struggling peoples who are trying 
to build their homes and the futures.

When it was pointed out to him that 
the Palestinians do not occupy what they 
claim as their land, and asked where he 
saw a solution, he said that the state of

He added that he has visisted Eastern 
Jerusalem, annexed by the Israelis who 
say they want it united, and found that 
the Arabs living there, including his own 
father, cannot receive Israeli citizenship.

Abdullah was born in Palestine, and 
earned his B.A. degree at the State Uni- 
versity of New York at Albany. .He 
earned his M.A. degree in a combined 
program at Buffalo and Albany, and is 
now a Ph.D. candidate in history at 
Georgetown University.

match, 7-6. 

Team Wins Pre-Season Game 



by Tom Corbett 

On Saturday, March 20 the Lebanon 
Valley Dutchmen played their first of 5 
pre-season scrimmages in Lacrosse. This 
year's team led by Captains' Tom Ces- 
tare and Don Engle, defeated the Main 
Line Lacrosse Club of Philadelphia 7-6. 
Scoring for the Valley in this game were 
Penn Bowditch with 2 goals, defenseman 
Tony Calabrese 1 goal and crease attack- 
man Jeff Rowe 4 goals. Rowe's last goal 
of the day came late in the 4th quarter 
to break a 6-6 tie. 

Main Line started the scoring for the

creation of Israel, because Stalin felt that 
this was the way to gain influence in the

with an organized Communist Party.

Girl's B-ball 
Ends Season 



by Pat Dougherty 

The Women's basketball team finished 
their season March 9 with a 54-10 loss 
to Millersville. The team record, 1-8, 
leaves plenty of room for improvement. 
Only two members of the squad won't 
be returning, Beckey Leas, co-captain, and 
Wendy Worrilow, so next year's team 
should be able to improve the team's 
record. The Junior Varsity squad finished 
their season with an 0-6 record. Cheryl 
Kirk was JV high scorer of the season. 

Becky Leas, who according to her 
coach has "a lot of natural moves" 
proved to be high scorer of the season 
with an over-all total score of 64 points. 
She will definitely be missed next year 
by the other members of the team. 

The teams would like to thank Mrs. 
Walters for her time and efforts in coach- 
ing them. Thanks also go to Marcia 
Keefer and Jodi Keeler, managers, for 
the long hours and encouraging words 
spent on the team. 

Away from basketball. Women's 
sports are sorely lacking in participants, 
especially in the intra-mural participation

dent of your ability. Obviously no one 
else is fantastic - look at all the prac- 
tice done nightly! Paddle-ball, squash,

Ask about your favorite sports. There s 
no tennis team you say? Try tennis 
intramurals. Maybe once there are som e 
tennis players, they'll build new courts- 
According to Mrs. Walters (she sees 
you freshmen and sophomore girls every

NOMINATIONS CLOSE APRIL 30 



LAKE FOREST, ILL.— It was reported in the March 21st issue of 
parade Magazine on the success of Barat College in Lake Forest, 
which has dropped all course requirements. A study showed that the 
students have tended to "elect tougher schedules," "delve into several 
fields," "work harder, enjoy college more, and achieve higher grades." 

This program has received praise, not only from students, but also 
from faculty who find the students much more interested in their 
courses. Under the program each incoming Freshman meets with a 
trained advisor and together they plan a program tailored to the in- 
dividual's interests and background. Responsibility is placed on the 
student. 



THAILAND(CPS)-Thailand security forces recently were shipped 
10,000 bars of a special American soap. Each bar contains a written 
message. After washing his hands once, the user learns "Communists are 
dangerous." Then as the soap wears down, another message appears: 
"Communists are evil." Further down the lather, the soap reveals: 
"Communists are never to be trusted." These bars of soap are being dis- 
tributed in "regions known to be infested with subversive elements."

Kling, were in Washington, D.C. from March 25 to 28, participating in a 
Latin American Seminar sponsored by the Inter-American Studies Center 
of Temple University. 

The group of approximately 60 participants came from 15 colleges 
and universities in Pennsylvania to share in an "in-depth exposure to 
Latin America," including briefings by the State Department, small 
group discussion sessions with the desk officers of the Latin American 
countries selected by the participants(the LVC group selected Ecuador, 
Bolivia, Argentina and Brazil), attendance at a session in the Foreign Ser- 
vice Institute's Language Services Division, where intensified instruction 
in the Spanish language is given to career officers, and visits to the 
Spanish and Portugese Sections of the Voice of America, the Library of 
Congress's Latin American section, and two or more Latin American 
embassies. Special meals were planned at a Spanish, a Brazilian, and a 
Mexican restaurant.

Gabay Gives Israeli Side 



by Richard Thompson 

Zvi Gabay, Vice-Cousul in the Con- 
sulate General of Israel in Philadelphia, 
said recently that Israel, "on the front 
of the democratic world," desired peace 
in the Middle East. He declared, "if the 
Arabs will be ready to solve this con- 
flict, Israel will be ready to solve it, too." 

On campus March 22, he presented 
the Israeli position, as the second of 
two speakers on the Middle East crisis. 
The first speaker, Mafez Abdullah, had 
presented the Arab point of view. Both 
lectures were sponsored by Pi Gamma 
Mu. 

Reviewing Israel's history, Gabay saw 
the present state as the fulfillment of a 
dream Jews have had to rebuild their 
ancient homeland. He noted that after 
70 A.D. Jews were forced to wander in 
the world and suffer many persecutions, 
and that they decided to "make an end 
to this terrible life." He added, "We 
never forgot that our aim is to turn back 
and rebuild our country." 

Gabay said that the Jews have not 
stopped rebuilding their homes in Israel 
since they began in 1880. But, he stated, 
they could not fulfill their aim of re- 
building their country without the help 
and recognition of the major world 
powers. 

He noted that this recognition was 
originally requested from the British, 
culminating in the Balfour Declaration 
of 1917 in which Great Britain recog- 
nized that the Jews should have a home- 
land in Palestine. That declaration re- 
ceived later ecdorsement from the 
League of Nations. 

Gabay went on to say, "Six million 
of our brothers were slaughtered in 
Europe. Nobody, no great power, took 
any action in order to stop that slaught- 
er," 

After the war, he said, the Jews ap- 
pealed to the United Nations for the 
right to build a country in Israel. The 
Jews in Israel, he said, accepted the 
Partition Plan of the United Nations, 
and on May 15, 1948, the state of Israel 
was established. He added that on the 
same day, "six Arab armies invaded that 
small state. We managed to keep our 
f country and our state. We managed with- 
7 out the help of any other country." 

He repeated Israel's aim: To build a 
Jewish state that would have friendly 
relationship with its Arab neighbors. 
But, he added, peace was not the aim of 
the Arab leaders. Gabay said that in 
1956 the Arabs again gathered troops 
around Israel, and that Israel was forced 
to wage the Sinai campaign. He charged 
that despite guarantees from the major 
powers for free navigation through the 
Straits of Tiran, Egyptian President Nas- 
ser had closed the Straits and had sent 
guerilla groups across to murder children 
in their classrooms. 

He further noted that the major 
powers had asked Israel to withdraw 
from Sinai, but Israel felt it needed pro- 



tection. President Eisenhower, he said, 
was kind enough to declare that the 
United States would join with Great 
Britain and Russia in guaranteeing Israel 
free navagation through the Suez Canal 
and the Straits of Tiran. This guarantee 
was endorced by the U.N. Gabay said, 
"They convinced us and we withdrew." 

Turning to 1967, he said, "The Six 
Day War was not our intention. I can 
assure you that nobody in Israel dreamed 
that there was going to be a war. But, 
suddenly, all the forces of the Arab 
world gathered along our borders: The 
Egyptians, with their 250,000 profes- 
sional soldiers; the Jordanians, with their 
17,000 soldiers; the Syrians, with their 
130,000 soldiers; the Lebanese, with 
their 10,000 soldiers; with the aid of 
Iraqi soldiers. . . 

Our foreign minister came to the 
States, and he traveled to Britain to 
France, and asked them, "Where is the 
guarantee? Where is the guarantee now? 
The Arab soldiers, with their leaders, 
axe going to invade our country. Where 
is the guarantee? Nobody listened to us. 
They were very nice. Some of them were 
very nice to us, but nobody helped us, 
even the United Nations' forces," station- 
ed, he said, to defend Israel's border 
with Egypt so no force from either side 
could invade the other. These forces 
were compelled to withdraw, and, he 
added, Israel was unprotected. 

"Nobody helwed us," he added. 
"Then, we waged the third war." 

Since 1967, Gabay said, Israel has in- 
tended to build a permanent peace, and 
to avoid "the state of anarchy out of 
which the Six Day War exploded. This 
is our aim, and this is our national 
policy. We haven't been changing it. We 
believe that we can get peace withthe 
neighboring countries." He state that 
Israel desires to spend its efforts to 
solve problems of starvation and disease 
in the Middle East. "We hope that this 
will be the aim of our neighboring 
countries, too." These problems could 
easily be soved, he said, with the 
money being spent by Egypt and Israel 
for military purposes. 

Gabay said that "Israel is on the front 
of the democratic world and Israel fights 
the fight of the democratic world." He 
sees the Russians as a new colonial ele- 
ment in the Middle East, whose aim is 
to create more problems and use the 
area as a "spearhead for their invad- 
ing..." "The Middle East," he said, 
"should be an area for the people who 
live in the Middle East. This is what we 
believe." 

Gabay noted the three million peo- 
ple live in Israel now, and said that many 
were Jews, such as those who had faced 
persecution in Europe, who had been 
forced to leave other areas. Israel's aim, 
he said, is to take the mixture of Jews 
from Europe, Africa, and Asia, and edu- 
cate them, giving them a better life than 
they had, Gabay added that Israel be- 
lieved in helping others, such as the 



new African nations which believe they 
can learn from Israel. "We want to share 
our experiences with other nations," he 
said.

ZVI GABAY 

In the question and answer period, 
Gabay was asked why Israel has not 
yet complied with the U.N. resolutions 
saying that the refugees should be al- 
lowed to move back to their former 
homes or be compensated for their loss- 
es. He said that the refugee problem was 
created mainly by the Arab states. In 
direct contradiction to Abdulla's po- 
sition, stated the week before, that the 
Palestinians were forced to leave to es- 
cape being massacred, Gabay said that 
the Jews asked them to remain but that 
the Arabs had asked them to leave. The 
Arabs, he said, wanted to use the refu- 
gees as a weapon for an aggressive policy 
against Israel. 

Gabay said that there was no U.N. 
resolution saying that all refugees must 
be allowed to come back. He added that 
Israel accepted 50,000 refugees and had 
returned the bank deposits of all of the 
refugees. Also, according to Gabay, Jews 
had been expelled from Arab nations 
without being allowed to take any of 
their belongings. Israel, he said, was 
ready to help solve the problem. He 
added that there were about 400,000 
Arabs in Israel and that there were eight 
Arab representatives in the Knesset. 

Gabay was born in Iraq, and later 
went to Israel. He graduated from the 
Hebrew University in Jerusalem and 
served with the African Department and 
with the Middle Eastern Department of 
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 

He received his M.A. degree from 
the University of Pennsylvania and as- 
sumed his present duties in August, 
1970.

Abortion Policy 

The daily amount of mail that is received by even a small college 
newspaper is both large and varied. One of the most frequent additions is 
the request for advertising space for the numerous and ever-growing 
abortion agencies. The new liberal New York laws have led to the rapid 
rise of an unbelievable number of such agencies. Their request is usually 
for free advertising on the basis of being a community service, but they 
state that if such consideration is not possible that they will pay. La Vie 
has published only one such ad(in the early part of the year). The 
reason for our hesitancy is not because of any objection to abortion or 
the publishing of material about abortion. We have been concerned 
about the practices of some of these companies. La Vie recently received 
a letter signed "A Concerned Sister" which gives unfavorable evidence 
on several of these agencies. Because of doubts(which this letter seems 
to confirm)about extra charges and failure to perform many of the 
services listed in their promotional material, La Vie will continue to re- 
fuse to publish such advertisement until such time as we have the re- 
sources to sufficiently investigate a service's advertising claims. Wewould 
urge any person seeking to use an abortion service to investigate 
carefully. 



Justice for Lt Calley 



-COMMENT 



by Carlo DeAugustine 

The trouble with writing an article 
for a newspaper(even a school news- 
papers that after one or two are writ- 
ten by the same person, the reader 
knows what he's going to say in the 
next one, so why read it? This makes 
me think, why write it? So I'm not. In- 
stead I'm going to review it. There 
haven't been that many written but I 
think it's a good time for a review. It 
accomplishes nothing. Newspaper arti- 
cles rarely do. I mean, I read a news- 
paper for 3 reasons: to find out what 
factually, historically happened; to find 
out what's playing at the movies; or the 
comics.. Any opinionated writings some- 
one might have, if I read them I usually 
think, that's his thoughts, and even if 
mine agree, I can't say that his opinions 
have changed mine. Maybe it's a close 
minded opinion on my part but I think 
editorial or subjective columns are trying 
to give out truths, but any real truth 
must be felt from within the person or 
they aren't really believed. So this article 
is trying to say: don't let anyone make 
up your mind, whatever you think is 
true, believe, but be open-minded enough 
to try to see both sides. 



by Jeffrey Heller 

The recent conviction of Lieutenant 
William Calley for killing 22 oriental 
civilians is presently one of the most 
prominent issues on the American scene. 
To a certain degree politics is being 
played with the conviction and ultimately 
with the fate of Lt. Calley 's life. Unfor- 
tunately we see here a case where poli- 
tics is being mixed with the search for 
justice and this can only lead to some- 
thing short of justice. 

The most surprising aspect of the 
Calley Trial was not the lieutenant's con- 
viction, but his conviction on the charge 
of pre-meditated murder. To look at the 
situation logically, every American soldier 
who has ever killed in Vietnam is guilty 
of pre-meditated murder. That is to say, 
American soldiers are trained to kill, 
when a soldier studies killing and then 
goes out and kills, that is pre-meditated 
murder. Is it not? Now we are faced 
with the situation of accusing all Ameri- 
can Vietnam War veterans who have kill- 
ed, with pre-meditated murder. Well, no 
one with any common sense would even 
suggest doing that, yet that logic would 
be sound. The point is that Lt. Calley was 
by no means committing pre-meditated 
murder, in that actual sense of pre-med- 
itated murder, when he killed 22 orientals 
at My Lai. In fact, as he said, he was 
just following orders. 

The fact that Lt. Calley claims he 
was just following orders that day at My 
Lai, and his superiors say differently, 
still leaves unsolved whose fault the 
murders were, not questioning of course 
that Calley did the shooting. Add to this 
the fact that Calley 's superior, Col. Oran 
Henderson is accused of having tried to 
cover up the massacre and the situation 
is more in doubt than ever concerning 
where to place the blame for the murders. 
Why would one of Calley 's superiors 
attempt to cover up Calley 's distasteful 
doings at My Lai unless he was partially 
responsible for them? There seems to 
exist a distinct possibility that in fact the 
killing at My Lai were not really Calley 's 
fault but the fault of those above him in 
the chain of command. This is not to 
imply, however, that the blame for the 
massacre can be carried up the chain of 
command to the President, Secretary of 
Defense or even General William C. West- 
moreland, then the commander of U.S. 
troops in Vietnam. Calley was but a 
platoon leader and would of course have 
followed orders like any good soldier 
does, or else face a court-martial for in- 
subordination. The simple fact of the 
matter is that Calley would have been in 
trouble whether he did massacre people 
at My Lai or chose to disobey orders and 
not massacre people. His superiors say 
they did not order the killing and Calley 
was not following orders, but why would 
they not say that and allow poor Lt. 
Calley to shoulder the blame for the 
whole thing? And let us not forget the 
talk that Col. Oran Henderson, Calley's 
Brigade Commander tried to cover up the 
My Lai killings. The further I go on, the 
more Calley's superiors, Col. Henderson 
and Capt. Ernest Medina, Calley's Com- 




mander and immediate superior, seem 
to share heavily in the responsibility for 
the My Lai massacre. 

Now we are faced an ominous ques- 
tion, shall we confine a man, an ordinary 
lieu tenant, Mr Anybody, at, "hard labor 
for the length of (his) natural life", for 
simply obeying the orders of the military 
chain of command while a member of the 
U.S. Army? To this I say no!!! one thou- 
sand times no! This nation cannot severe- 
ly punish Lt. Calley without threatening 
to disrupt the military chain of command 
throughout the armed forces. I do not 
think it sounds inhuman to say that the 
lives of 22 orientals are not worth dis- 
rupting the U.S. military chain of com- 
mand for, when one considers the cir- 
cumstances. Calley killed the orientals in 
a distinct combat zone. In the days be- 
fore the massacre his unit had sustained 
noticable causualties. Also civilians in 
Vietnam all come under a certain degree 
of question because American soldiers 
are unable to distinguish between civil- 
ians and Viet Cong, and no one ever 
proved that all of the 22 orientals Lt. 
Calley killed were all 100% pro-South 
Vietnam. 

The fact that the My Lai massacre was 
a great tradegy goes without saying, but 
the case for justice must always be 
stated. In this country the theme of our 
judicial system has always been justice 
not revenge. To do justice to the victims 
of and participants in the My Lai mas- 
sacre does not mean that Lt. Calley must 
waste away the rest of his young life in 
an obscure prison and never be heard of 
again. Actually a tour of combat duty 
in Vietnam is punishment in itself, caus- 
ing men, in this case Lt. Calley, never 
to know from one day to the next whether 
or not he would be shot to death by a 
hidden sniper, killed by a land mine ex- 
plosion, or stabbed to death on pungi 
sticks. Calley was by no means right to 
arbitrarily shoot human beings, but he must 
not be made to shoulder the burden of 
responsibility that belongs to his superiors. 
My Lai - type incidents occur in every 
war, and of course only the innocent are 
unjustly hurt in the end. In many ways 
of thinking Lt. Calley is simply a victim 
of unfortunate circumstances and a hor- 
rible situation. Think about it, what would 
you have done if you were in My Lai on 
that fateful 1968 day, and your name 
was Lt. William Calley?? 



INTIMATION 



by AL SCHMKK 



U.S. imperialism is the most ferocious 
enemy of the people of the entire world. 

Mao Tse-Tung, 1964 

Just about every major American 
periodical has had a feature story on the 
recent ping-pong tournament between 
Chines and American teams. In these 
stories, there is plenty of political ana- 
lysis by experts who find, in table ten- 
nis, something new in diplomacy. 

I suppose that political correspon- 
dents have found a gold mine in the 
new "diplomatic offensive "(their words) 
launched by Peking. For them, the phe- 
nomenon of "China-watching" may be 
entering a new phase, since the proposed 
Chinese policy of mainland news re- 
porting will probably give the correspon- 
dent's reports more credibility. 

I can't help but feel that we are 
seeing a thaw of relations that will re- 
semble those of the immediate post- 
Stalin period -a lessening of nuclear 
tensions, and increasing economic and 
cultural exchange between the U.S. and 
the People's Republic. I look at this 
change in terms of detente and accom- 
modation -and an increase of common 
interest in discouragement or outright 
suppression of national wars of libera- 
tion. 

It should be remembered that the 
U.S. and the Soviet Union made a more- 
or-less permanent peace on the under- 
standing that they would both try to 
quell revolutionary efforts in the emerg- 
ing nations. Red China has become fair- 
ly comfortable since the last upheavals of 
the Cultural Revolution and may stand 
to lose if it continues to back revolu- 
tion elsewhere. Certainly the threat of 
border war with the Soviets will not 
down, and China's relations with the 
Eastern European Communist regimes 
could be improved to bring greater eco- 
nomic advantage. The U. S. is still perch- 
ed threateningly in Indochina, and may 
continue to be there for a long time. 
Perhaps the Chinese leadership is willing 
to sacrifice revolutionary fervor, in order 
to gain security -for China as a whole, 
but also for themselves as party leaders. 

This possible move toward accom- 



modation can be substantiated by refer- 
ence to recent political events. The 
Chinese Communist leadership has stood 
behind West Pakistan's Yahya Khan in 
the Pakistani civil war and has con- 
demned the Bengali struggle for inde- 
pendence. The Khan regime is not revo- 
lutionary in any way -it can be charac- 
terized most accurately as a right-wing 
military dictatorship that is being sub- 
sidized by U.S. dollars and military hard- 
ware. That Chou en-Lai can send a letter 
of support to this regime's leaders indi- 
cates fairly clearly that Peking is now 
concerned with consolidation within its 
own borders and "peace" around those 
same borders. 

Peking may be headed down the 
same path as the Russian Communist; 
leadership. Weary of uncontrollable fight 
and purge, certain well-entrenched lead- 
ers will try to hold power by manipu- 
lation and the assumption of a friendly 
manner toward capitalist powers. These 
same leaders will try to regularize life 
within their borders so that domestic 
tranquillity will be the first order -over 
justice or any kind of worker control 
over industrial production and working 
conditions. Life will become entirely pre- 
dictable, and many of the gains won 
by blood and hard work will be lost 
to the hands of a privileged bureaucracy 
and military. 

If a thaw is coming between the 
U.S. and the People's Republic of China, 
I would hope that it can come without 
a corresponding freeze within both soc- 
ieties. I have my doubts that it will. 



Woman Walks 
For Peace 

(CPS) -Mrs. Louise Bruyn finished 
her 500 mile walk from Boston, reading 
her five theses and bringing the People's 
Peace Treaty to the top of the Capitol 
steps. 

Six hundred people signed a copy of 
the treaty during her six week walk. 

She was received at the east entrance 
of the Capitol by Sens. Ted Kennedy and 
Jacob Javits and by Rep. William Drinan 
in a small demonstration that coincided 
with support demonstrations in approx- 
imately 25 state capitals. 

Bruyn has been walking and talking 
about the war to those she met since 
Feb. 17, in one to 12 mile daily hikes. 

Her five theses, which she termed 
demands on the Capitol steps, are: 
1) immediate and unconditional with- 
drawal of U.S. troops and air forces 
from Southeast Asia, 2) the formation 
of a study commission at the U.N. to 
find ways of forming and enforcing a 
democratic world government, 3) the 
formation of an international commis- 
sion to aid the Vietnamese people, 4) 
international aid through the U.N. for 
national liberation movements, and 5) 
an international agency to control nu- 
clear armaments and their production. 

Bruyn termed the reception to the 
goals of her walk as being overwhelm- 
ingly favorable. "Only three to fi ve 
people that I met were hostile." 

I've come through farms, cities and 
residential areas, and I've talked to many 
people. Those people spoke from thetf 
hearts-and they said they wanted peace, 
she told a crowd of 150 well-wishers, 
newsmen and newswomen. 

"But they also feel despair."

A JOINT TREATY OF PEACE 
BETWEEN THE PEOPLE 
OF THE UNITED STATES, SOUTH VIET NAM & NORTH VIET NAM 

Introduction 

Be it known that the American and Vietnamese people are not enemies. The war is carried out in the 
nam e of the people of the United States, but without our consent. It destroys the land and the people of 
Viet Nam. It drams America of her resources, her youth and her honor. 

We hereby agree to end the war on the following terms, so that both peoples can live under the joy of 
.ndependence and can devote themselves to building a society based on human equality and respect for the 
earth; In rejecting the war we also reject ail forms of racism and discrimination against people based on 
color, class, sex, national origin and ethnic grouping which form a basis of the war policies, present and 
past, of the United States. 

PRINCIPLES OF THE JOINT TREATY OF PEACE 

AMERICANS agree to immediate and total withdrawal from Viet Nam, and publicly to set the date by 
which ail U.S. military forces will be removed. 

Vietnamese agree to participate in an immediate ceasefire with U.S. forces, and will enter 
discussions on the procedure to guarantee the safety of alt withdrawing troops, and to secure 
release of ail military prisoners. 

AMERICANS pledge to stop imposing Thieu, Ky and Khiem on the people of Viet Nam in order to ensure 
their right to self-determination, and to ensure that all political prisoners are released. 

Vietnamese pledge to form a provisional coalition government to organize democratic elections, 
in which ail South Vietnamese can participate freely without the presence of any foreign 
troops, and to enter discussions of procedures to guarantee the safety and political freedom of 
persons who cooperated with either side in the war. 

AMERICANS and VIETNAMESE agree to respect the independence, peace and neutrality of Laos and 
Cambodia. 

Upon these points of agreement, we pledge to end the war in Viet Nam. We will resolve ail 
other questions In mutual respect for the ri hts of self-determination of the people of Viet Nam 
and of the Uniied States. 

As Americans ratifying this agreement, we piedge to take whatever actions are appropriate to implement the 
terms of this joint treaty of peace, md to ensure its acceptance by the government of the United States.

CENTER NEARS COMPLETION 



by Diane Wilkins 

"The College Center still belongs to 
the contractor. They haven't turned the 
building over to the college." So said 
Mr. Walter Smith, College Center Direc- 
tor, in a request that all students stay 
out of the uncompleted section of the 
building. Mr. Smith said that student 
trespassing was delaying the completion 
and that there have been reports of theft. 

At this time a committee has been 
se t up to assist the College Center Di- 
rector in making policy concerning the 
operation of the Center. The member- 
ship includes: Dean Marquette, chair- 
man, Dean Faust, Dr. Riley, Mr. Smith, 
Dr. Horgan Dr. Faber, Dave Steffy, Bill 
Morrison, and Roger Heckman. President 
Sample acts as an ex-officio member. 
Die committee is at this time discussing 
the important topics of hours for the 
Renter as a whole and for each area(i.e. 
toe snack shop, game room, etc.). They 
also deal with the questions of con- 
duct, scheduling of the rooms, and the 
me nu and prices of the snack bar. 

*t is vital that students take an in- 
eres t in the work of this committee 
j* nd make any ideas and suggestions 
n ° Wn to any member of the committee 
Specially student representatives. All 
operational policy that is established by 
Director of the College Center is 
ttien effective with the approval of the 
Resident of the College. The Student 
f( °uncil will still maintain their present 
n ctions in the formation and sponsor- 
^,°J social and academic events. 
^ The objectives of the College Center 
<, ave been set up and approved by Pres. 
^ m Ple and are as follows: 

e College Center strives to become 

ln tegral and functional part of Leb- 
^ n Valley College by serving: 1). As 
all „° i 0nirnuni ty center of the College for 



lives. 3) As a focal point tor all mem- 
bers of the community to learn to know 
and understand one another through in- 
formal associations outside the class- 
room. 4) As a part of the broad edu- 
cational program of the College (a) by 
providing a laboratory through which 
students may learn by experience the 
roles of social responsibility and leader- 
ship and (b) by providing through its 
programs and personnel the opportun- 
ity for cultural, recreational, and social 
growth, aiming to make leisure time ac- 
tivities an appropriate adjunct to the Col- 
lege's formalized program of studies. 
5) As a unifying force which attempts 
to cultivate a respect and enduring 
loyalty to Lebanon Valley College. 

Mr. Smith also emphasized the im- 
portance of student employment in the 
Center. Many new jobs will be available 
to students starting in September. An 
announcement will be forthcoming next 
month as to a time and place for those 
students in financial need to apply for 
positions. Although these students will 
be given first preference, other students 
will probably be needed. 

Mr. Smith repeated that certain parts 
of the Center will be available for use 
for special activities, but that full opera- 
tion will not begin until September. Al- 
though the building appears finished, 
final repairs by the sub-contractors are 
still continuing and a large amount of 
the furnishings will not arrive until the 
summer. _ 



Campus Scene 

Spring hath sproingled, heralding the 
Arts Festival which seems to be progres- 
sing quite well despite the usual insur- 
mountabilities. Who says we got no cul- 
ture? 

At Mr. Smith's request, student infil- 
tration of the new campus center is to 
cease immediately. (Apparently the con- 
struction workers may be corrupted by 
so much rampant intellectualism). After 
joyously anticipating a Student Center 
for so many years, surely we can all re- 
strain our inquistiveness for several more 
months, months, months, 

May Jahweh perserve us in our dis- 
tress! The campus spiritual life is really 
bad when even the chapel speakers can't 
take it. In the face of impending doom, 
shouldn't somebody inform the Jesus 
Freaks the 11:00 Tuesday is open for 
proselytizing. 



E. 



It's spring, isn't it? I mean, after all 
of the past two months' worth of me- 
teorological second-guessing have we 
finna 

of more-clement-than average weather? 
Was the highly touted ground hog's pre- 
diction made in vain? No, dear friends, 
it was not!! As I write this, the evening 
breezes breathe seventy-two more-than- 
welcome degrees into my tiny cubicle, 
making David Crosby all the more enjoy- 
able and removing from my mind any 
serious thoughts concerning academic 
endeavor until much later. All seems to 
be packaged in the peaches-and-cream 
atmosphere of the moment. Yet I know, 
as sure as there will be questions con- 
cerning atonement on a Religion 13 test, 
that one day seen, most likely an invit- 
ing Saturday afternoon, I will be sum- 
moned by my loving parents to perform 
that most indigenous of all spring rituals, 
the first mowing of the lawn. I know 
that every self-respecting male on this 
campus has succumbed to this variation 
of ancient slave labor; perhaps women's 
lib isn't such a bad idea after all. It 
would certainly allow me to see a lot of 
Phillies games that I would have ordina- 
arily missed (Phillies games proving to be 
the most powerful stomach-purging eme- 
tic since warm dishwater). Alas, the Lan- 
caster-Lebanon area is not very well 
known as a harbor for vast members of 
the braless brigades circulating nation- 
ally, so it is my guess that we will never 
witness any well-rounded shapes push- 
ing our Jacobsens and Lawn Boys, at 
least not this year. 

The thought of this impending day 
of doom brings back to mind not-so- 
fond recollections of Openning Day, 
1970. It is firmly entrenched in the 
darkest dungeons of my memory, assum- 
ing equal status with second visits to 
the dentist and applications of the death- 
defying rectal thermometer as the most 
fearsome ghost of my existence. I rose 
early that sunny day, and after consum- 
ing a great quantity of high -energy food 
(Cheerios with bananas and four tea- 
spoons of sugar drenched in dairy cream, 
no less), strode out of the blackness of 
the garage into the blinding rays, gas- 
oline can clutched firmly in my left fist. 
Smashing it to the asphalt surface of the 
driveway, I returned to the cavernous 
darkness, emerging moments later with 
the ultimate instrument of destruction, 
the terrifying Wixard Three-Star twenty- 
inch rotary powermower. I shuddered at 
the thought of decapitating millions 
of defenseless blades of Kentucky Blue. 
Yet I was driven onward by that most 
animal of instincts, that most savage of 
all human influences, my mother. "I had 
hoped that you would be started by 
now! We're expecting company, you 
know!" "Yes, mother!" I intoned with 
not-so-silent resignation, knowing full 
well that I would have the vegicide of an 
entire populus of innocent monocots on 
my hands. 

I unscrewed the cap from the top of 
the gasolene can very methodically, 
watching with crazed intensity the shiny 
snake-like spout protruding from the 
opposite side of the cap. I rotated it in- 
to place, tilted the can gently and began 
to pour the amber liquid in the general 
direction of the filler hole on the side of 
the motor housing. It was only after I

had poured half of the contents on 
the driveway that I realized that I had 
forgotten to remove the filler cap. 
I was gazing at the fuming brook 
winding down between the grooves in 
the macadam when my Mother again 
called to me, in the voice of a judge 
passing sentence on the hapless criminal 
befijre him. "If you don't start mowing 
this instant, / will!" That sealed the fate 
of the cowering chlorophyll at my feet. 
I was filled with a sense of humanitarian 
duty. In a flash, the very thought of my 
mother performing an act of war against 
the rampant plants, an act which I 
should be performing as my duty to 
good lawn care, liberty, justice, and 
freedom from dandelion for ever and 
ever, became intolerable. A fit of blind 
familiarity encased my thoughts, and I 
groped forward, struggling in the glare 
of pre-noon sunlight, until my fumbling 
fingers touched the starter handle. I 
crushed the handle in a vice-like grip 
of my left hand and tugged with all the 
might that I possessed. The two-and- 
one-half-horsepower Briggs and Stratton 
beside me coughed into life, temporar- 
ily deafening my left ear, which was 
conveniently placed next to the exhaust 
stack. The sputtering of the mower re- 
newed my strength, and in an instant 
I bounced to my feet and charged into 
a thick patch of crabgrass. The sun 
seemed to assume the gleam of the 
diamond on my mother's antique en- 
gagement ring. 'This one's for you, 
Mom!!!" I gasped as I drove ever on- 
ward. 

'-\ ™/» 

..Q. V.-'' 




M H tavt Uum Utmuim 



The grass offered a tough defense 
against my raging juggernaut, but to no 
avail. The clippings and pollen cemented 
my nostrils permanently shut, the thick, 
moist blades repeatedly clogged my 
whirling blades, and wheels too worn to 
be effective constantly sank into the 
moist April sod. Yet, in my numb alle- 
giance to motherhood and Belter Homes 
and Gardens, these obstacles melted 
quickly, falling in a blurring mist of 
splattered carotene and xanthophyll. 
Finally, after two hour's sweat and dedi- 
cation.the end seemed to be in sight. 
Just two more laps around the perimeter 

and I was free, when suddenly 

SPLAT!!! The sickening report lifted 
me from my post-adolescent daze for 
the first time and the painful realization 
hit me: I had forgotten to use the family 
pooper-scooper on the yard before I be- 
gan. Ignorant of the basic biological 
tiuths that imprison all cocker spaniels, 
I had dived headfirst into the muddy 
maelstrom without a second thought to 
the dangers that lurked beneath the 
tops of the blades. A muted cry lodged 
in my parched throat. Then came the 
ultimate failure. I lifted my eyes just in 
time to see the putrid projectiles strike 
home on an entire washline full of 
snow-white bed linen. My heart sank, 
knowing full well that those sheets 
would never be really clean again. 

As my mother struggled futily over 
the results of a seventy-mile-an-hour 
collision between bedsheet and dogwaste 
that evening, the reality of the day's 
carnage loomed full and bright in my 
mind. The final toll had been approx- 
imately four billion blades on grass, three 
bedsheets, a pair of irreparably grass- 
stained white tennis shoes, and one 
rotary lawn mower blade(broken later 
that day on a nastily well-concealed 
drainpipe). Few tempers had flared, al- 
though an extra load of wash was not 
the kind of devotion that Mom had ex- 
pected, but the day lived on in my 
mind for countless hours afterward, and 
on this solemn occassion, it set the 
stage for yet another first-mowing de- 
bacle, one which will doubtless be re- 
peated thousands of times by an equal 
number of hapless and unwitting mur- 
derers of Bod's green carpet from Maine 
to California. Just keep in mind, as the 
fatefull moment arrives, the lusty cry of 
the amateur grass-cutter: "Remember 
the Pooper-Scooper!!!!" 

(To add insult to injury, I had to 
take that cocker spaniel for a walk later 
the same day.) 

Till later. .

CHOIR TOUR 
COMPLETED 

by Phil Rowland 

The Lebanon Valley College Con- 
cert Choir recently set a historical mile- 
stone as the college's first group to per- 
form in New York City's Town Hall to 
a small but receptive audience. This 
highlight appearance was part of the 
choir's 35th annual tour which ran from 
March 19 through March 27, with con- 
certs performed in Warminster and Car- 
bondale, Pa.; South Boundbrook, Fan- 
wood, and Westfield, N.J.; Mastic Beach, 
Long Island, N. Y.; Hartford and Man- 
chester, Conn.; and Melrose and Maiden, 
Mass. 

As a fitting climax to the successful 
tour, the Choir gave its annual campus 
concert on March 28 to a capacity 
audience in the Chapel, and was re- 
warded for its performance by a stand- 
ing ovation. 

This year's program consisted of both 
classical and contemporary works in- 
cluding movements from a Palestrina 
mass, selections by Gabrieli, Samuel 
Barber, as well as Bach's Cantata for 
voices, brass, and percussion. In addi- 
tion, several lighter selections including 
"Spinning Wheel" and "Cecila" were 
performed for the high school audiences. 

The Choir continues to live up to 
its reputation for projecting composi- 
tional styles of all different musical 
periods. Its musical appeal to both high 
school and church audiences was evi- 
dent not only in the enthusiastic re- 
sponses and many standing ovations 
which the choir received, but also in the 
letters which the choir has received since 
its return from tour. Numerous requests 
for the choir to return in the future 
may also be attributed to the success 
of this year's tour. 

The choir now looks forward to per- 
forming Lalo Schifrin's Jazz Mass for 
a chapel program on May 1 1 and for the 
Creative Arts Festival Mav 14.

Judging from last evening 's( April 15) 
presentation of the Forty-Third Annual 
Academy of Motion Picture Arts and 
Sciences Awards, militarism is definitely 
"in" this year. The film Patton copped 
themafority of the awards, including the 
Best Film award and another Oscar for 
its reluctant star, George C. Scott, who 
was summarily and jointly anointed for 
Best Performance by an Actor in a 
Major Role(Best Actor, as Walter Matt- 
hau curtly pointed out just prior to the 
actual award, is not the proper title for 
this award)despite his repeated grum- 
lings about the stupidity of the Aca- 
demy Awards in general and his desire 
to be removed from the list of candidates 
for the "meat show", as he so tactfully 
put it. The awards that Patton did not 
win seemed to be won by another war 
spectacle, Tora! Tora! Tora!, which, by 
virtue of a budget that even our govern- 
ment couldn't produce, dazzled enough 
eyes to capture, among others, the a- 
ward for Best Technical Effects. The 
obvious results of the selection of these 
flicks as the most superlative of all of 
Hollywood's celluloid spectaculars are 
an establishment of a criterion of color- 
fulO.e. flame-orange and blood-red), sen- 
sual image-making to insure the acclaim 
of fellow film-makers, the incarnation of 
the dreams of John Wayne and Bob 
Hope to "tell it like it is(was)" with re- 
gards to our glorious nation and its 
even more glorious past, and the final 
proof of the long-suspected axion that, 
despite the lucrative youth market for 
pictures of social significance at a budget 
that is not necessarily untouchable, the 
way to make a good film in Hollywood 
is pour on money, add a vast quantity 
of blood, guts, and patriotism,and try 
to sell it to the "silent majority." Thus, 
while good, cheap movies like M.A.S.H., 
Catch-22, Little Big Man, and Joe rake 
in the money and attempt to keep the 
silver screen from going the way of the 
passenger pigeon, the Edsel, Corfam 
shoes, and self-sharpening razor blades, 
the latter-day de Milles of Tinseltown 
express their art in million-dollar epics 
that rarely break even, much less earn 
their keep. 

Mr. Scott's renouncing of the Awards 
Presentation Show seemed to be quite 
justifiable. If one word could describe 
the over-all tastelessness of the affair, it 
would be a scatological reference and 
thus render itself unprintable. Instead, I 
will substitute the word "crass." Ac- 
cording to Webster's New World Dic- 
tionary, crass is defined as "grossly stu- 
pid or dull." The Academy Awards Pre- 
sentation Show was all of the above and 
more. During the course of the show, the 
viewing audience was confronted with 
the following assaults on its collective 
intelligence. Please bear with me. 

The program was opened by the 
President of the Academy himself, in- 
toning the virtues of the society that he 
leads, including the five-odd educational 
films the Academy produced last year. 
Yawn. After ten minutes of this, the 
^eople presenting the awards were in- 
troduced. Both men and women were 
adorned in their best Prom Nite plu- 
mage. They all looked very mod and 
high vogue and fashionable, even the 
afore mentioned Mr. Matthau, for the 
first time ever resembling something 
other than a animate Hush Puppy loafer 
left out in the rain. Lola Falana and 
Paula Prentiss Benjamin, wife of Richard 
Benjamin Prentiss, tied in the category 
of Lack of Pectoral Support in a Major 
Formal Appearance for the victory, both 
Pblantly bra-less (as were all of the other 
middle-aged chicks and younger birds 
present, save for Shirley Jones and Lillian 
Gish, both of whom had quite accept- 
able excuses), both bouncing delectably. 
Needless to say Nouveau Chique darling 
Sally Kellerman gave them a run for 
their money(?), but fell short(no pun in- 
tended)during her sing-along of "Thank 
You Very Much" from the musical 
Scrooge. Burt Lancaster, also in that 
number, stole the show with his quasi- 
Spanish, quasi-Italian vccal which came 
out sounding like the Latin Quarter Gay 
Bar on New Year's Eve. 

Frank Sinatra received his special 



award from the Academy for his hu- 
manitary service, i.e. donating three per 
cent of his income to charity as a tax de- 
duction. During his typical, low-key, 
Sinatraesque acceptance speech, he was 
heard to mumble something about the 
prize belonging to every individual who 
gives of himself to the less fortunate. 
Nice job, Frank. Two hypocrisies in one 
evening isn't a bad average. The third 
hypocrisy of the Sinatra clan was sup- 
plied by an audience close-up of daugh- 
ter Nancy, the erstwhile singer/stomper 
of boots, applauding tearfully. Nice job, 
camera crew. A few more minor awards 
(Best Close-up of a Hangnail in a Major 
Medical Motion Picture, Best Nude-Scene 
Body Make-Up, etc.) filled the gap be- 
tween Sinatra and the flop of the eve- 
ning, Bob Hope. Revolving around his 
usual "I never got an Oscar and Boy, am 
I Jealous" schtick, Hope came up with 
bomb after bomb, hitting rock bottom 
with his reference to Best Supporting 
Actor nominee Chief Dan George's lack 
of Americanism. Gee, that's cute. After a 
repeat of his scolding of the filmmakers, 
issued initially last year, for their in- 
creased candor in presenting screen sex, 
and his pronunciation of Ryan O'Neal 
as best boy actor of the year, Hope left 
to a smattering of polite applause and 
the general relief of everyone, only to 
return to present another in the long 
line of incidental Oscars. 

The ancient Helen Hayes received the 
Best Supporting Actress Award for her 
role as the equality ancient stowaway in 
Airport, thus pipping the voluptuous 
Miss Kellerman (everyone's personal fav- 
orite). The Best Actress nominees were 
such a faceless group of girls, distin- 
guished only by Ali MacGraw's beauty 
and Carrie Snodgress' talent, that I don't 
even remember who won, though I think 
it was someone named Jackson. John 
Mills beat the far-more-deserving due of 
Richard Castellano and Chief Dan George 
in the Best Supporting Actor category 
for his work in the dubious Ryan's 
Daughter. And, of course, George C. 
Scott outclassed the field in Best Actor, 
the only deserved winner in the lot 
(sorry, but his polish as a professional 
far outdoes the bravado of Jack Nichol- 
son or the tasteful albeit type-cast char- 
acterization of James Earl Jones, the 
only two candidates even remotely near 
him in comparable performance). In all 
fairness to Scott, though, I do think the 
Academy should have honored his re- 
quest and removed him from contention. 
That would have made James Earl Jones 
the winner, and me much happier. By 
shoving the Oscar down Mr. Scott's 
throat, the Academy proved itself to be 
incapable of any form of regard for the 
people they put on display, and exhibited 
its ability to be America's largest invader 
of privacy, rivaled only by the F.B.I./ 



IH have someone in the movie industry 
to believe in. 

Wouldn't the academy awards be nice 
on radio? 



CINEMA 

by Sue Ann Helm 

"Confess! Confess! You area citizen. 
It is your duty to confess!" Thusly are 
Italian suspects interrogated by Papa in- 
spector portrayed by Gian Moria Volon- 
te. However, it is not the suspects who 
deserve to confess but Volonte himself 
as film audiences are informed during 
the first 15 minutes of this exploration 
of power use and abuse. Exposed to a 
raw premeditated murder committed 
under lavish black bed sheets, one ac- 
companies a newly promoted Political 
Intelligence head as he consciously in- 
criminates himself supposedly to find 
out exactly where the immunity line 
lies. Volonte as previous Inspector 
of Police oversees the inspection while 
leaving constant clues to lead his depart- 
ment to its salvation. 

I, perhaps unfortunately, am some- 
what sick of political expose concentra- 
ting on senseless and brutal authority - 
whether of right from a leftist view- 
point and vice versa, or as in the Con- 
fession, left from a leftist perspective. 
Hence, the prods that director Elio 
Petri delivers to the stupid investigators 
and their sometimes insane deductions 
seem on the whole childish and super- 
fluous to the films primary function 
as a character-system investigation. 

Despite the sadistic, masochistic over- 
tones in Volonte's freudian fantasic re- 
lationship with his mistress, he is shown 
as a man trapped by a profession that 
molds as well as responds to his as- 
sertions. His mistress provokes her own 
murder by taunting him, saying that he 
is a child -makes love like a baby. The 
great representative of authority cowers 
before the actualities of his own human- 
ity. "Men are children when confronted 
by authority" says Volonte and he as 
authority cannot maintain professional 
and personal self-respect when shown 
that he too is man. In Volonte's case 
the supreme authority is woman who 
challenges his masculinity, threatens to 
castrate him and humiliates him just as 
the police do when interrogating sus- 
pects. "He's a faggot, of course he 
killed her" and on and on, degrade and 
conquer. We are all impotent children 
before our father's eyes. 

The plot as far as I can discern, un- 
folds with a rather conventional hip 
slant. We all know(since Costa Gravas 
hit American theatres)that filmmakers 
currently like to lamb rightist police states 
and Investigation of a Citizen Above 



Suspicion merely follows Z up by show- 
C.I.A. ghouls and J. Edgar Hoover, who j ng us that there are high officials who 
could win an Oscar for his daily por- commit crimes, but who are precisely as 



the film's title indicates, above suspicion. 
The fact that Volonte goes to such pains 
to lead his investigating team to him- 
self simply sets the police up as in- 
sipid lackies who either are so incom- 
petent that the whole political issue is 
ridiculous or they, like the lowlings 
they interrogate, also cower when con- 
fronted with authority. 

Ho, Hum, may I suggest that we turn 
to the past and rebuild our flagging film 
interest with some Buster Keaton of 
Chaplin oldies. If any of you isolated 
bucolics out there get to Washington or 
New York, there is an excellent Keaton 
festival on right now that takes fil 111 
out of the political market place and 
puts it back in the streets.

May 14-16 Arts Festival : THE RITE OF SPRING 



by Jim Katzaman 

In the plush, elegant offices of Madi- 
son Avenue in New York City the great- 
est ideas of the business world are con- 
ceived and carried out. However, it is 
in the small, humble surroundings of 
Saylor Hall that the LVC event of the 
year is taking its final shape. It has pro- 
gressed from mere conception to its 
final preparations for delivery. And on 
May 14-16 one will be able to witness 
the birth of the activity that hopefully 
will see many more birthdays. The activ- 
ity, the event is the First LVC Spring 
Arts Festival (SAF). So much has been 
done; so much is being done; but so 
much still needs to be done. 

Since it is becoming more and more 
apparent that students know less and less 
about the festival and its related features, 
this page is intended to present what is 
probably the most comprehensive ac- 
counting of the festival's most interest- 
ing facets. Directly to the right you can 
see a sketch of the overall area to be 
covered by the SAF. In the middle of 
the quad will be a coffee shop which 
will feature some folk singing, a little 
classical guitars, and a hootnanny. Clas- 
sical films will be shown outside on the 
walk of the college center while those en- 
tered in the student film competition 
will be shown in the chapel lecture hall. 
The two Alpha Psi Omega plays, "The. 
Monkey's Paw," and "Live Spelled Back- 
wards," along with enterants in the stu- 
dent drama competition will be per- 
formed at the base of the chapel steps 
with the audience seated on the steps 
giving the effect of a Roman amphi- 
theatre. 

Exhibits of painting and sculpture 
will also be in abundance throughout 
the campus. It is planned to have the 
quad between Mary Green and Sheridan 
Avenue filled with various sculpture dis- 
plays. Paintings will be displayed indoors 
with the most notable exhibit in the 
library where several paintings on loan 
fron the state museum in Harrisburg are 
already on display. 

Now only two weeks away, the 
Spring Arts Festival looks more attractive 
and more impressive than even its op- 
timistic planners could have conceived. 
Enthusiasm and participation abounds on 
both the state and local levels. Pennsyl- 
vania, in giving its approval of the pro- 
ject, has given a big boost to it through 
the grants of needed funds and the 
loans of the state museum paintings. 
Millersville is among the colleges that 
sending groups to the festival to partici- 
pate in the various contests. Several high 
schools within a 30 mile radius have also 
been invited to compete and they have 
accepted. Local community involvement, 
a prime goal of the festival planners, has 
been on a very active level including the 
participation of kids from the Annville- 
Cleona area in the contest. 

Again, interest and enthusiasm a- 
bounds everywhere except for one vital 
area, the LVC campus. (Of all the or 
ganizations and schools involved in the 
festival, LVC appears to be the least en- 
thusiastic of all.) Reactions to the SAF 
here range anywhere from, "ItH be the 
greatest thing ever to hit the college," 
to "ItH be a great weekend to go 
home." Probably the most prevalent 
comment is: "HI believe it when I see 
it!' It may be an overstatement to say 
that it will be the greatest thing to hit 
the campus; it is typical apathy to react 
by going home for the weekend; but it is 
the challenging skepticism of the rest of 
the college that is the driving force be- 
hind the planners goal to show the 
campus something to believe in. 

But the planners cannot do it alone. 
The festival is an all-college project and 
it needs all-college support. To those 
Who say that seeing is believing, the 
People in charge of the SAF reply, 
"Helping is supporting." There are con- 
stant reminders that this is not the 
typical college event per se. It is ad- 
m inistration supported but it is student 
initiated and student run. What it all 
boils down to is that this is your arts 
festival, your show. Those in charge, 
certainly not the least of whom is Don 
^rantz, are not trying to coordinate the 
festival only for their own self-interest 
a °d self-satisfaction. Constantly one 
bears complaints that there is nothing 
to do at Lebanon Valley on weekends. 

there is something to do on at 
least one weekend. If anything, a stu- 



dent owes it to himself to stay on the 
campus at least one weekend out of the 
spring. And that weekend on which all 
should stay is May 14-16. 

There is enough to keep almost every- 
one busy and enough things to see at 
one time to keep boredom from setting 
in. For instance, when one tires of 
looking at sculptures and painting, he 
can watch movies, plays, and musical 
which will be performing simultaneously 
at the different locations on the cam- 
pus. To use a worn-out phrase, "There's 
something for everybody." 

Probably one of the main questions 
arising out of the discussions about the 
festival is "How much will it cost me?" 
The answer -nothing. All the activities 
and events are free for all to come and 
enjoy. A free weekend of interest and 
fun -is that too much to ask for a 
showing of student support? Don't for- 
get this is your festival. 

If you feel the urge to help out your 
fellow students, keep in mind that the 
office for the Spring Arts Festival is 
located on the second floor of Saylor 
Hall. Don Frantz or one of his assistants 
will be there to show how you can help. 
Make May 14-16 a weekend to remem- 
ber.

WHY 
FESTIVAL ? 

When i first came to Lebanon Valley, 
i was surprised and disappointed by the 
lack of student activity as far as total 
campus participation. There seems to be 
no student unity except in small groups. 
However, there is such a tremendous op- 
portunity for a unique bond between 
students, especially in a small college 
like L.V.C., even if their only common 
interest be the paths they plod to classes 
every day. Perhaps it is because i am 
just realizing what it means for people 
to finally get together that i am an- 
xious for an enthusiastic unity to dissolve 
the apathetic disparities at LVC into 
all night raps and over-lapping class- 
room discussions. . . i see the coming 
Spring Arts Festival weekend as such a 
potential means for unity. . . so that it 
will soon be common for us to meet 
each other as people and nothing less. 

Hopefully, SAF weekend ALIVE peo- 
ple from L.V.C. will encounter and 
touch ALIVE PEOPLE from scads of 
other schools and free universities. Who 
knows? Maybe an ALIVE people from 
LVC will meet an ALIVE people from 
LVC !

Art exists for its own sake -an artist 
doesn't think of why he's making the 
things he makes-he just does it; Public 
Schools do so much to stiffle a child's 
creativity; his energies are firmly chan- 
neled toward more "practical" academic 
activities. As a result, this innate creativ- 
ity becomes dormant and is wasted. The 
familiar complaint, "I have no artistic 
talent" just isn't true. Everyone has 
some creative ability, some latent talent. 
This college needs more creative activ- 
ity, and the Arts Festival is providing 
opportunities for it.

RECORDS 

(Continued from Page 4, Col. 5) 

skirt the perifery of the desired effect 
without ever reaching the heart of their 
intended subject. I have found three 
albums which "hit the core" out of the 
entire flood, actually only two if you 
take into account that one of them is a 
re-release from over a year ago. Here 
are my selections. 

Crazy Horse, by Crazy Horse(Re- 
prise 6438). Most of you who know of 
Crazy Horse recognize them as Neil 
Young's back-up band. They served very 
well to flesh out Young's stage act for 
two years, providing a strong but un- 
obtrusive back-drop for his unique ly- 
rics. During this period, their musical 
high point was undoubtably witnessed 
in the long, free-form jam session that 
turned into "Down By The River" on 
Young's Everybody Knows This is No- 
where album(his second post-Buffalo 
Springfield release). The sporadic, jang- 
ling guitar interplay became their trade- 
mark, as well as Young's. Crazy Horse 
with Neil Young never reached public 
acclaim, however. The only number that 
they performed that ever reached the 
general public's ears was "Cinnamon 
Girl," a song that was released by Young 
only after a very similar version of the 
song was released successfully by the 
Gentrys. Needless to say, the last thing 
that the AM listening audience needed 
was a song being performed nearly i- 
dentically by two groups. The Gentrys 
had the sales edge by virtue of a con- 
siderably earlier release date, and both 
Young and Crazy Horse remained anony- 
mous to the majority of the listening 
audience, excepting the so-called "un- 
derground" music advocates. By that 
time, however(Spring 1970), Young was 
a member in good standing of Crosby, 
Stills, etc., and Crazy Horse rapidly be- 
came relegated to studio duty only, 
blending with Young's mercurial moods 
and tastes. A rift soon developed, and 
half-way into the recording sessions for 
Young's third albumC4/ifer the Gold 
Rush), Crazy Horse was unceremonious- 
ly dumped. The results of that move are 
well-documented; After the Gold Rush 
has been dismally panned by nearly 
every critic to comment upon it, the 
main criticism being a lack of polish on 
the numbers recorded by Young with 
Crazy Horse. The non-electric numbers, 
performed by Young and accompanied 
by himself on acoustic guitar or Nils 
Lefgren on piano were treated well, and 
reflect Young's present concert act, in 
which he plays only those two instru- 
ments and is not backed by a band. On 
that album, the lack of time for re- 
mixing caused by the departure of Crazy 

Horse is evident, especially on the num- 
bers "Southern Man" and "When You 
Dance, I Can Really Love," and to a 
lesser degree on "I Believe in You," 
(which, along with the piano-backed 
"Birds" and the cleanly-done "Only Love 
Can Break Your Heart." is the album's 
best cut). 

Now, with Young removed from the 
scene, Crazy Horse has had ample time to 
assemble a very neat, concise musical 
package. Original members Danny Whit- 
ten (guitarist), Billy Talbot (bassist), 
and Ralph Molina (drummer) are joined 
on the album by all-purpose musician Jack 
Nitzsche, who becomes a permanent 
group member on piano, Nils Lofgren on 
rhythm guitar, Gib Gilbe in fiddle, and 
the incredible Ry Cooder on slide 
guitar, and the result is a paradoxical 
package; very concise yet extensively 
worked, rough-sounding yet meticulous- 
ly produced and recorded, and stylistic- 
ally unified while offering a variegated 
musical display. The flavor is uniquely 
Crazy Horse, with the dense, swirling 
guitars, described by Bud Scoppa of 
Rock magazine as "jangly, chimy, ele- 
gant/dirty . . . spine-tingling," setting the 
musical mood fron the first chord, re- 
maining intact throughout the album, 
through the countrified "Dance, Dance, 
Dance" (the only Neil Young song on 
the album), through the quiet, contem- 
plative "I Don't Want To Talk About 
It," and even through the perfectly 
raunchy "Dirty, Dirty." The sound is 
muddy and chopped-up, yet concise, 
with every lick in its proper setting (a 
tribute to both the group and engineer 
Bruce Botnick). Nitzsche's piano is per- 
fectly blended with the basis riffs, and 
forms with the bass and drum a rock- 
solid foundation for the guitar gym- 
nastics which dominate the album. The 
lyrics are the general rock formula, 
unrequited love pablum and nice boozy 



truckin' tales, which is somewhat of a 
blessing because they allow the listener 
to ignore them in favor of the beautiful 
instrumental work. The best cuts on the 
album are "Gone Dead Train," Lofgren's 
"Beggar's Day," and the aforementioned 
"Dirty, Dirty," but all are very good. I 
highly recommend this album. Just as 
Young seems to work better without 
Crazy Horse, Crazy Horse seems to work 
much better without Young. 

Magnetic South (RCA LSP 43710, 
and Loose Salute (RCA LSP 4415), by 
Michael Nesmith and the First National 
Bank. I know what you must be think- 
ing, but no, this is not Mike the Monkee 
doing more of that group's garbage-rock 
with a new set of musician-criminals. In 
these two albums, three very significant 
things happen: Michael Nesmith proves 
that he is the excellent songwriter that he 
was long suspected to be (remember 
"Different Drum," the Nesmith song 
that has kept Linda Ronstadt above 
water for years), The First National 
Bank establishes itself as the unrecog- 
nized fourth power in the country-rock 
scene, along with The Band, Poco, and 
The Flying Burrite Bros., and O.J. 
"Red" Rhodes establishes himself as 
perhaps the best pedal-steel guitarist in 
the business, better even than Pete Drake, 
Buddy Emmons, Jerry Garcia, and (yes, 
I'm actually admitting it) Rusty Young, 
That's quite a build-up for a band that 
few have ever even heard, but it is pure 
truth, not hype. 

Magnetic South was the band's first 
album, released in the dark ages, year 
1 B.W. (Before Woodstock, the album), 
an era when few so-called rock devotees 
would admit that the pedal-steel was a 
legitimate instrument (notice that it is 
now the "Scene's" most popular instru- 
ment. ..even Chicago has used one.) The 
record-buying public of 1969 was not 
ready for the sweetness and relaxation 
of easy-going "hick" music in a rock 
package, iron Butterfly being all the rage, 
and thus the album collected dust for 
the better part of a year and a half be- 
fore its re-release this fall just prior to 
the release (in January) of Loose Salute. 
This album, a logical extension of the 
first that shows definitive growth of a 
band musically, is selling moderately well 
at the time of this writing (due in part 
to a boost from a very favorable review 
in Rolling Stone recently) but is not des- 
tined to set any kind of sales record un- 
less present trends reverse themselves. 
This is sad. Nowhere have I heard so per- 
fect a pedal-steel. Red Rhodes makes his 
axe change quises a thousand times, mak- 
ing it cry mellowly, or shriek violently, 
or purr with the restraint of an orchestral 
string section. Unlike Rusty Young, who 
seems hung up on his Leslie-induced 
pseudo-organ noises, or Jerry Garcia, who 
plays his steel as though it were a lost 
infant crying for its mother, Red Rhodes 
uses his instrument's versatility to make 
it show the myriad facets of its own per- 
sonality, not assume another instrument's 
"plumage." He is a fiery, jazzy player, 
seeming to rankle at playing backwoods 
chord patterns. Running through every 
song on both albums is a constant, well- 
planned pedal-steel lead, a riff that occa- 
sionally surfaces with crystal clarity, per- 
fectly embellishing Nesmith 's beautifully 
buoyant melodies. Even the sadder songs 
on the albums seem quietly content and 
soothing. Why Nesmith never was allowed 
to break the Boyce-Hart stranglehold on 
the Monkee 's recorded material is beyond 
my comprehension, as his songs make 
old Monkee pap assume the stature of 
kindergarten ditties. The best cuts are 
"Calico Girlfriend," "Little Red Rider," 
"The Crippled Lion," "Mama Nantuck- 
et," and 'The Keys to the Car" on Mag- 
netic South, "Silver Moon" released as 
a single that unfortunately went nowhere 
fast), "Dedicated Friend," "Conversa- 
tions," and "Listen to the Band" on 
Loose Salute. These demonstrate best 
the clear melodies and witty lyrics that 
set Nesmith above all other country-rock 
songwriters, including Richie Furay and 
Gram Parsons. 

The First National Bank has a unique 
sound, more sedate and countrified than 
the Burrites, a sound spearheaded by Nes- 
mith 's fine tenor vocals (at last no fal- 
setto multiple harmonies), Rhode's 
churning steel, and the rhythm section 
of Nesmith's rhythm guitar and the 
drum-bass team of Johns Ware and Lon- 
don. I know that if you are at all into 
country-rock and can bury the ghosts of 
Mickey, Davey, and Peter in little bro- 
ther's toy chest, you will enjoy these two 
records greatly. 

If not, I suggest you buy Woodstock 
Two and return in six months for fur- 
ther instructions. 



Funky Follies 

by Bill Worrilow 

If you happen to be walking past 
the courtyard of Funkhouser and see 
someone tightrope walking between the 
east and west wings, don't bother doing 
a double take; such bizarre antics are 
commonplace there. 

What the human mind will conjure 
up if left to the monotony syndrome 
long enough. Funky residents have borne 
witness to "ballbuster contests," plastic- 
bag flying, toilet exploding and now a 
new entree in LVC's "Book of Novel 
Accomplishments"-flag planting at the 
top of a 105-foot crane boom! Yes, this 
milestone was set by junior Tom Thomp- 
son at approximately 6:55 P.M. Mon- 
day, April 19. Not since Sir Edmund 
Hillary reached the summit of Mount 
Everest in 1953 has there been so much 
excitement. 

Mr. Thompson began his ascent with 
a few bewildered students looking on. 
By the time he reached the apex of the 
boom (located at the construction site 
of the new women's dormitory, to be 
completed in January 1972)and planted 
a white flag with a black peace symbol 
on it, students were swarming in the 
Funky courtyard and the backyard of 
the Clio house to get an unobstructed 
view of this unprecedented spectacle. 
To receive Mr. Thompson at the end of 
his dramatic descent were a hundred 
applauding students and one curious 
Annville policeman, whom Mr. Thomp- 
son kindly obliged in giving the first 
interview. Apparently someone wanted 
to give Mr. Thompson's feat more pub- 
licity than it was really worth, for when 
I later asked him about the police in- 
terrogation, he told me that someone 
from Lebanon Valley had phoned the 
Annville police station and reported an 
attempted suicide. 

HERE COMES 
YE SUN 

by Bill Worrilow 

For those of you wondering what 
that huge face on the quad that gapes 
up at you through one eye is, it is 
sophomore Don Frantz's vignette for 
Lebanon Valley's first Spring Arts Festi- 
val to be held on May 14, 15, and 16. 

Don got the idea for the sidewalk 
mural after working on the festival one 
Saturday night into the early hours of 
the morning. From the window of his 
office in Saylor Hall he watched the 
sun rise and envisioned it winking at 
him. At 1:00 P.M. Sunday, Don, sprawled 
out in the middle of the quad with 
eighteen packs of colored chalk heaped 
nearby, began his extravaganza with the 
assistance of two girls who will parti- 
cipate in the arts festival -Sandy Drayer 
of Millersville State College and Nancy 
Guarnera from Harrisburg. Later on in 
the day they were joined by four Vick 
roy girls -Kathi Morrison, Cathy Circolo, 
Cindy Miller, and Kathy Henderson -and 
Bill Redice, a Hammond resident. 

Don intended his design to be more 
esthetic than commercial. He ascribed 
several symbolic meanings to his work. 
"From the sun comes life" os the theme 
of his design. The vegetation on the head 
of the sun represents life, and the closer 
the branches are to the sun the more 
proliferous they are(depicted by the ver- 
dant green); the further away the branch- 
es get the more withered they become 
(depicted by the light blue leading into 
purple). Only one branch turns back to 
the sun and that one outlines a fish 
encompassing the earth, evoking refer- 
ence to the Creation story in Genesis. 
As mentioned earlier, the facial expres- 
sion is how Don imagined it on the sun 
as he watched it rise that morning. The 
female lips impart the romantic aspect 
of watching the sun set. 

Twelve colors were used on the pro- 
jest, which took ten hours to complete. 
Don titled the design 'The Sun Gives" 
and dedicated it in remembrance of com- 
poser Igor Stravinsky and Dolores Tharp, 
a close friend of Don's recently killed 
in a car acident. 

In one way "The Sun Gives" is iden- 
tical to its earthly counterpart: on the 
next rainy day it won't be seen. No 
matter to Don though, for in that one 
creation he has earned for himself a rep- 
utation: already three people have ap- 
proached him soliciting his talent for 
display in Annvile, Lebanon, and the 
Lebanon Plaza.

Chess Club member Manoochehr Birang awaits the next move of his opponent. 
The Club has finished their impressive season with a 7-1 record. 

Chessmen Win Title 



With the chess team's 4V2-V2 victory 
over Gettysburg, the lusty knights have 
secured the western division of the Penn- 
sylvania Collegiate Chess League, for 
the second consecutive year. The record 
for the year was 7-1. losing a squeaker 
3-2 to Shippensburg State College. 

A few past achievements which de- 
serve mentioning are a third place in 
last year's state team championships, 
a third in the national small college 
tournament in N.Y.C., and second in 
the league playoff losing to Bloomsburg 
State. Again this year, the team will re- 
present LVC at the league tournament 
at Dickinson College on April 24-25, 
and the league playoffs to be held at 



LVC in May. 

The record of the team members is 
by boards 1 through 5 and alternates: 
Glenn Beidel(Sr.) 7-1-0, Robert C. Shipe 
(Soph.) 5-1-1, Bill Schreiber(Soph.) 5-2-0. 
Manoochehr Birang(Soph.) 4-1-0, Mike 
Dortch(Soph.) 5-0-1, Bill Howard (Fr.) 
alternate, 0-2-0, and Ted Legenza(Fr.) 
alternate, 0-1-0. In the years ahead, this 
young team will gain valuable exper- 
ience and represent LVC in the chess 
world. 

The Chess Qub meets every Wed. 
night at 7:30 in Carnegie Lounge. A 
cordial invitation is extended to the 
student body and those interested per- 
sons in the surrounding community.

JEWISH SCHOLAR TO SPEAK ON JUNE 6th 



National . . . 

NEW YORK, N.Y.— A bill is currently under discussion in Congress 
concerning the killing and extinction of sea mammals. The bill is being 
sponsored by Sen. Fred R. Harris (D.-Okla.) and Rep. David Pryor 
(D.-Ark.), theBill would: 

1. Make it a criminal offense for any American to kill seals, polar 
bears, whales, walruses, or any other ocean mammals, 

2. Ban the importation into the United States of all products from 
ocean mammals, thus removing the economic incentive for their slaugh- 
ter. 

3. Phase out the seal kill on our Pribilof Island without abrogating the 
current treaty with Japan and Canada. (The United States now agrees 
to kill seals on land for those two countries in exchange for which they 
prohibit their nationals from killing seals in the open waters.) 

4. Direct the United States State Department to initiate a truly in- 
ternational treaty in which all countries agree to stop killing ocean 
mammals, both on land and at sea. 

A copy of the Harris-Pryor Bill may be obtained by writing to 
Friends of Animals, 1 1 West 60th Street, New York, N.Y. 10023. 



OBERLIN, OHIO(CPS)-Student government no longer exists at 
Oberlin College, after the Senate last week voted itself out of existence 
and froze the student activity fee funds. 

The Senate's action was in response to a low turnout of only 39% 
at a recent student government election. 

The Student Senate froze the student funds as of July 1, 1971 and 
provided stipulations for the formation of a new student government. 

However, action by the Dean of Students may invalidate the Senate's 
actions; and if fewer than 51% of the students vote in the referendum 
for a new government, that might also be invalidated. So it goes.

Mrs. Monteith 's appointment will be effective until July 1 , 1971, when 
Paul F. Pickard, 1968 graduate of Lebanon Valley, will become director 
°f public relations. During his years at Valley Mr. Pickard was Editor of 
La Vie. He is currently teaching in the New York City public schools. 



COLLEGE CENTER WORKERS NEEDED 

If you are interested in working in the College Center beginning next 
fall, it will be necessary for you to establish financial need through 
submission of a Parents' Confidential Statement form through College 
Scholarship Service, Princeton, N.J. 

If you have any questions concerning the establishment of financial 
need, please see Mr. Schaak, Financial Aid Officer, Rm. 104B, Ad- 
ministration Building. 

If you have any questions concerning work in the College Center, 
please contact Mr. Walt Smith, Director of the College Center, at his 
office located along side the reception desk in the Center. 



Dr. Abraham Katsh, President of 
Dropsie University, Philadelphia, Pa., will 
be the speaker for the 1971 commence- 
ment program at LVC. "Dr. Katsh," in 
the words of President Sample, "is a re- 
nowned Jewish scholar who has spent 
most of his life at New York University 
developing various academic pursuits and 
gaining many honors and awards of state 
and national importance... 

"It will be the first time that Lebanon 
Valley College has had such a Jewish 
scholar in our program." 

Born in Poland on August 10, 1908, 
Dr. Katsh has indeed held numerous 
positions and won many awards. After 
his arrival in the United States in 1925, 
he was instructor of Hebrew at New 
York University from 1934-1937, be- 
came executive director of the Jewish 
Culture Foundation from 1937-1944, 
and from 1944-1967 he was the Founda- 
tion's executive chairman. In 1967 he 
was chosen to be President of Dropsie 
University. He was awarded the Brith 




DOCTOR ABRAHAM KATSH 



Abraham Gold Medal in 1952, the Matz 
Foundation Prize in 1956, the American 
Association for Jewish Education Award 
in 1959, and many other awards too 
numerous to mention. 

Dr. Katsh is also a noted author. 
He translated Einstein's Theory of Rela- 
tivity into Hebrew in 1939. He has also 
written orginal works such as Education 
and Racial Prejudices and The Bible and 
the Koran, just to mention a few. 

Dr. Katsh is indeed an expert in the 
fields of Judaism and education. His cre- 
dentials alone will make it interesting to 
hear his address to this year's graduating 
class. 

Dr. Katsh will be awarded an honor- 
ary doctorate by the College along with 
similar awards to Dr. Henry H. Nichols, 
Pastor of James Memorial United Metho- 
dist Church, German town who will serve 
as Baccalaureate speaker, and Richard 
T. Smith, M.D. '37, research director, 
Merch, Sharp, & Dohme.

J. Edgar Is Watching Valley, Too 



Dear College Press Service, 

The enclosed materials are copies of 
materials taken from the Media FBI 
office on March 8th, 1971. We thought 
that you would be interested in receiving 
them. 

We hope that this material will be 
useful to you and that you will pass on 
other copies (destroy this copy) to others 
who might be especially interested in it. 
We have sent copies of similar material 
to other groups in order to receive as 
wide distribution of this information as 
possible. 

We believe that surveillance such as 
this violates individuals' basic rights to 
participate in organizations of their 
choice. It must be stopped if we are 
to have the just, peaceful society we all 
hope to live in. 

Citizens' Commission 
To Investigate The FBI 

The April 24, 1971 release from the 
College Press Service contained a report 
on documents obtained by the above 
committee. We were greatly stunned(al- 
though perhaps we shouldn't be)to find 
Lebanon Valley College included on the 
list of educational institutions under 
surveillance along with 67 other Penn- 
sylvania' Colleges and Universities. I im- 
mediately sent for complete copies of the 
documents mentioned in the CPS article. 

One Memorandum was dated 8/28/70 
from the Director of the FBI on the 
subject of Student Agitation(STAG), 
Antiwar Activities(VIDEM), and Racial 
Incidents (RACIN). The introduction 
states the "Bureau headquarters is facing 
growing demand for timely and accurate 
information on developments in cap- 
tioned areas (mentioned above) ..." 
There follows a detailed outline of the 
specifications for submitting such re- 
ports to the Bureau. These reports apply 
particularly to incidents involving vio- 
lence. "Where a particular group is pri- 
marily responsible for organizing the 
demonstration, or disturbance, or is sub- 
stantially involved in it and such group 
warrants investigation or is already un- 
der investigation as subversives, name of 
the group should be included in the 
title." 

The second document (9/23/70) in 
which Lebanon Valley appears, is from 
SA William B. Anderson, Jr. to Resident 
Agents. Quoting directly : "There follows 
a listing by Resident Agents of colleges 
and universities in the area covered by 
his Resident Agency with the enrollment 
according to latest available figures." 
Lebanon Valley is listed with an en- 
rollment of 1,348 under the name of 
SA George H. Keenan. Other colleges 
listed include Millersville, F & M, Lehigh, 
Elizabethtown, Ursinus, Moravian, and 
Muhlenberg. 

Each Resident Agent is requested to 
supply the following information to Co- 



ordinator John C. F. Morris of Squad 4 
by 10/1/70: 

"(1) current number of university or 
college sources on the academic or ad- 
ministrative staff including security of- 
ficers broken down under those cate- 
gories, (emphasis theirs) 

"(2) number of current student se- 
curity informants or PSIs. 

"(3) any other current sources for 
information re student agitation (by po- 
sition or agency). 

"(4) idenity (i.e., professor, police 
officer, student) of any of the above 
who can provide you with advanced 



information on student agitation. 

"(5) listing of what information of 
Bureau interest cannot be obtained from 
the university or college (not limited 
to STAG). 

"(6) brief outline of steps you pro- 
pose to increase, strengthen and im- 
prove your coverage with respect to 
STAG. 

"I want facts, not double talk. This 
information is not for statistical pur- 
poses or to measure RA accomplish- 
ments. We have a job to do and cannot 
get where we are going until we know 
where we are. With the data from the 
respective RAs in hand, we can see 
where we are and go from there." 



JAMES GANG ARRIVES 



That long awaited concert on the 
Valley College Campus will soon be- 
come reality with the appearence of the 
JAMES GANG under the sponsorship 
of Student Council. The James Gang, a 
nationally-known rock group, along with 
Jimmie Spheeris, a folksinger, will be 
seen in a two hour concert on May 21, 
at 9 P.M. in the Lynch Memorial Gym. 

The James Gang is a three piece 
group consisting of Jim Fox, drums, 
piano and vocals; Dale Peters, bass guitar 
and vocals; and Joe Walsh, lead guitar, 
vocals and organ. They have been play- 
ing together since 1966. In that time 
they have released three albums, three 
singles which appeared on the national 



charts and most recently have been seen 
co-starring in dramatic and musical parts 
in the film Zachariah. The Gang also re- 
ceived much publicity from their tour 
of Great Britian last fall with The Who. 
Jimmie Spheeris is a young folksinger at- 
tempting to make a start in the popular 
music world. 

Tickets for this performance went on 
sale this week at a special price of $2.00 
for LVC student and one guest. Tickets 
for other interested individuals are $3.00 
per person. Information about tickets 
may be obtained from any Student 
Council member. 

-Nancy Johnson 




The James Gang will appear in concert on May 21 in Lynch Memorial Gym in 
the First such event of the semester. Preceeding the James Gang will be Jimmie 
Andreas Spheeris, soloist.

ONCE AND FUTURE 

In this, the last issue of the school year, we would like to summa- 
rize past performance and future goals of the paper. In this not-so-ob- 
jective opinion, La Vie has attempted and generally succeeded in ex- 
panding the coverage of campus events and just getting out on time. We 
have been hampered by a lack of staff-especially writers and typists. 
The positions of Sports Editor and Business Manager are as yet still 
unfilled for next year. This is a call for those interested, including those 
who signed the publications survey and have not been contacted, to 
watch for and attend the organizational meeting in the fall. 

Next year from our office in the College Center we overselves'hope 
to become more of a center. We plan to continue publishing every 
other week, but every other issue we hope to have six pages instead of 
the usual four. We would like to add that any suggestions and especially 
creative ideas are always welcome. 

It is amazing what one can learn by working in such an organization 
as a newspaper-both craft-wise and about people. People, it was quickly 
discovered, are normally late, perfectly willing to let others do their 
work, and basically apethetic. If this sounds bitter, that is not how it is 
meant. The most difficult task is how to delegate responsibility and 
see that the work is done without having to do it yourself. It is hoped 
that the learning received this year will help to create a better paper 
next year. 



THE CASE FOR DISSENT 



INTIMATION 



by AL SCHM1CK 



It seems that Lebanon Valley stu- 
dents have recently been treated to a 
little extra something in their dormitor- 
ies. From what I have heard, there has 
been a supply of religious literature de- 
livered to the residences, for the pur- 
poses of conversion to the True Faith. 
As to who is responsible for this distri- 
bution, know one seems to know, but 
he/she must really care about the state 
of the souls of college students. 

I mean, what other kind of person 
would give out literature on the real 
meaning of revolution or the true signifi- 
cance of the peace symbol or the correct 
study of man's origin? A student? An 
evangelical townie? I wish this person 
or persons would step forth and tell me 
how he feels. 

If I don't meet this person, then I 
can only surmise as to his motives. Worse 
still, I can't really discuss evolution, 
drugs, astrology with him, as these seem 
to be questions of vital import to him. 
So in his absense, 111 try to piece to- 
gether some thoughts that might have 
brought this person to finding a need to 
convert us. 

This party seems to feel that he is 
doing a great service in promoting the 
Gospel of Christ to the unsaved. He 
probably believes at the bottom of his 
being that there will be a Judgment, and 
that Heaven and Hell await all men. 
He certainly believes that the Date of 
Decision must not be put off-that one 
must make a clear-cut choice between 
Salvation and Damnation now. And quite 
importantly, he feels that he, and others 
like him, have brought about many real 
conversions. 

So it appears that he is not alone. 
And it is at this juncture that we would 
have to concur. The "Jesus-freak" phe- 
nomenon is growing all over, and this 
campus is full of zealots to the Word. 

I feel compelled to ask, "Why? 
Why do you do it when there is so much 
thought and word around you that 
shows you fire-and-brimstone approach 
to be thoughtless, reckless-and fearful?" 
The whole direction the world is taking 
is away from this demonological ap- 
proach to man's future. It could not 



stay with the self-assured(?) and com- 
pulsive attitude of such a religion. Have 
you been listening in class? Have you 
been willing to sort out ideas? 

Are you really getting high on Jesus? 
Is this more than a kick? Is it giving 
you satisfaction with your state of sal- 
vation? I ask because I don't know 
what makes you tick. 

I don't feel good about the gospel 
you are preaching. If it is "good news" 
then I would hate to get bad news -like 
finding out that my grandmother doesn't 
pray for me, that ugly faces in black 
hoods are directing my fingers on this 
typewriter's keyboard, or that my hair 
will spell my downfall, and exclusion 
from the Book of Life. You haven't 
shown me something that will save me, 
only something that will destroy me as 
a man. 

Your literature is somewhat amusing 
-because it is so ridiculous. But it has 
a way of scaring me— because I know that 
much of its philosophy shapes your lives, 
and I don't want to fight religious wars 
with anybody, including you. Your mes- 
sage brims with violence and hate -which 
mock the very words of Christ. This 
isn't what I want. 

"Don't get me wrong -I only want to 
know."

Mr. Cronkite is Managing Editor of 
the CBS Evening News. He has been a 
reporter for more than thirty years. In 
1962, the George Foster Peabody Tele- 
vision News Award saluted, among other 
Cronkite achievements, his "Twentieth

After a few thousand years of so- 
called civilization, there are so many 
things wrong with the world that we have 
made. The mere fact that this species 
of ours has survived so far seems hardly 
adequate cause for self-applause nor can 
we indulge in self-congratulations for 
our civilization's considerable material 
and cultural development that has failed 
to guarantee survival or nurture the 
bodies and spirit of all mankind. 

If we are to wipe out not only the 
symptoms, but the causes, of injustice 
and decay, there must be change. There 
is scarcely any argument on that. But 
the question is the form of the change 
and, as in such critical times in our his- 
tory, we find conflicts between the seem- 
ing intransigence of the established order 
and the impatience of youth. Each gen- 
eration, when it is young, is anxious to 
get on with the obvious reforms that 
the establishment of whatever era seems 
reluctant to institute. With the world's 
present potential for mass suicide with 
nuclear weapons, over-crowding, hun- 
ger, is there any wonder that the stu- 
dents of today rebel with an urgency un- 

BURN THE 
MONEY ? 

by Nancy McLean 

People's National Bank of Lebanon 
sponsored an Economics and Business 
Administration field trip to New York 
City on April 29th and 30th. Mr. A.L. 
Stauffer, Executive Vice President, and 
Mr. Edgar Miller, Vice President, from 
People's National Bank accompanied the 
students and four faculty members 
from the College. 

The group visited four institutions; 
the first was Manufacturers Hanover 
Trust Company - the third largest bank 
in New York City and one of the larg- 
est retail and wholesale banks in the 
country. After lunch in their cafeteria, 
a short tour of the data processing de- 
partment was conducted. The Vice Pres- 
ident of the International Department 
spoke about family money, Eurodollars, 
remittances, and letters of bank credit. 

The Federal Reserve was the next 
stop. There is approximately $400 bil- 
lion of gold, coins, and paper currency 
in this bank. There has never been an at- 
tempt to rob this bank because of the 
security precautions taken, such as, iron 
bars, locks, and guards (who are tested 
every month to maintain a high level of 
arms efficiency). 

In the gold vault there is $13 billion 
of gold bricks which is enclosed by 11 
feet of lead and a 90 ton door. Each 
gold brick weighs approximately 28 lbs. 
and is worth about $14,000. All this 
gold belongs to 80 foreign nations and 
is used for thier transfer payments. The 
U.S. gold is in Fort Knox. 

The Federal Reserve holds money 
that its member banks send. When this 
money is counted the good currency is 
separated from the worn-out currency. 
About $10 million of this currency is 
burned daily. The average life of cur- 
rency in the U.S. is about 2Vz years. 

After a tour of the bank we heard a 
lecture on the Federal Reserve System 
and its policies. 

Rothchild's, a medium size broker- 
age firm, was the next stop on Friday, 
April 30th. The consumer's and broker's 
relation in a stock transaction was ex- 
plained. There was a tour of their "cage" 
(about $500 million of securities are 
kept there) and their data processing 
room. Because of the growth and com- 
plexity of stock transactions, computors 
have played a vital part in speeding up 
and simplifying the process. 

At the New York Stock Exchange the 
brokers' dealings were viewed from the 
gallery above the trading floor. In the 
Board of Governors' room, the group 
heard a talk about the specialist, the 
"broker's broker." 



known to earlier generations? 

There ought to be a better way. and 
that, I submit, is what the students are 
saying-there ought to be a better way, 
not only to settle international disputes, 
but to provide for the world's under- 
privileged and to assure peace and well 
being for all. 

Almost everyone agrees with those 
broad objectives. It is the manner of 
achieving them-primarily the dispatch 
with which we get the job done-that 
separates us, that brings us to this in- 
creasing and terrible polarization of our 
society. It is time that both sides look 
and listen. Don't stop, there isn't time 
to stop, but look and listen, one to the 
other. 

As essential as is the need for listen- 
ing to the other side's arguments, is the 
necessity for critical self-examination of 
one's own arguments. It would be help- 
ful if each side recognized its own ex- 
cesses of speech and action even as it 
condemns those of the opposition. 

It cannot be expected that more 
fanatical leaders or their disciples are 
going to follow such rational behavior, 
nor are they likely to be tolerant of 
those tJiat do. Fanatics seem to require 
total commitment and are not loathe to 
use bully tactics to get it. It also is the 
essence of their demagoguery that they 
preach only part of the lesson. Those 
who are hardened in their position prac- 
tice and preach repression and their wea- 
pon is fear. To rationally examine our 
alternatives, none of us can yield to 
fear. 

Freedom of speech, press and peace- 
ful assembly, which we all should hold 
dear, really comprise the freedom of 
free inquiry-the freedom to study our 
democratic institutions without fear of 
harassment by misguided patriots or 
heckling malcontents, freedom to advo- 
cate change without facing trial for her- 
esy. Such study may require throwing 
off old concepts, shibboleths in the 
spirit of basis research. We must hear 
out the dissenters. We must seek out and 
make use of the original thinkers. 

We have the future in our power. 
The 21st Century is not going to burst 
upon us in full flower. As we move into 
the future, the possibilities open to man- 
kind stagger the imagination. Man can 
mold the new century into anything he 
wants it to be. But to do that, we must 
know what we want and we must ex- 
amine each of our institutions to deter- 
mine whether they stand up to the 
challenges of the century ahead. 

We of our generation may have to 
look no further than our own failure to 
plan for this future to find the seeds of 
youth's discontent. Convinced that we 
are not doing the job, many of you 
have turned your backs upon us. Even 
as you should not reject that which is 
good of our institutions and that accumu- 
lated wisdom which we possess, per- 
haps solely by reason of age, we must 
not reject those among you who dissent. 
In youth's rebellion against any unsatis- 
factory status quo, we must assist-not 
resist. This does not mean either for 



youth or for us groveling to coercion, 
yielding to blackmail, or forgiving vio- 
lence. It docs not mean we can tolerate 
lawlessness, for the law is the foundation 
of our freedom. 

It does mean that we must not let 
our revulsion to the transgressions of the 
militants blino us to the future. 

Society is going to change. The only 
question is whether youth is going to 
help and, indeed, if we are going to help. 
Our help is needed, for while our way 
of life will change, we need to communi- 
cate by word and deed to those coming 
behind us, the values that we know are 
constants-right or wrong, truth or false- 
hood, generosity or selfishness, dedica- 
tion or cynicism, self-discipline or li- 
cense. 

This country has not lost its ability 
to respond to challenge. Though all the 
challenges of today seem frightening in 
their complexity, there should be no 
reason for despair. I do not despair that 
young people are taking a more con- 
cerned interest in our affairs than ever 
before in our history. God bless you for 
all for that. 

The more and the greater the challen- 
ges, the greater the heroism of thought 
and deed and of courage to surmount 
them. Just remember this. The more 
exciting, then, the prospects of the com- 
bat; oh, how much sweeter, then, the 
taste of victory.

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, May 14, 1971 




Since this is the last edition of my 
column for this auspicious school term, 
I am going to present you with an 
original fairy tale of our times, which 
means it may or may not be socially 
significant. It is entitled Unhappy Harry 
and the Magic Mr. Turnip. Read and 
learn the truth. 

Once upon a time, somewhere in 
Georgetown, lived Unhappy Harry. Un- 
happy Harry had every reason in the 
world to be happy. He had a beautiful 
home, a beautiful wife, two loving 
children, and a very affectionate Russian 
Wolfhound named Ivan. Yet he was not 
happy. He longed to leave the drabness 
of his job as a secret agent for the 
F.B.I., to quit being the double for 
Inspector Lew Erskine, to forever stop 
wearing the onyx and gold tie tack/cam- 
era that clashed with his Seersucker. He 
longed to travel the ends of the earth 
in search of adventure, lust, and free- 
dom from his beautiful wife(who turned 
frigid in 1963)and his beautiful children 
(who, for some reason, seem content to 
sit in the hall closet and drool in his 
bowling bag). His dog Ivan was his only 
happiness. It was Ivan who fetched the 
morning paper into Unhappy Harry's 
bulletproof living room. It was Ivan who 
smuggled Unhappy Harry a piece of his 
cruel wife's forbidden pop-tarts late at 
night. It was Ivan who emptied Unhappy 
Harry's bowling bag and took the child- 
ren to the day-care center every Tuesday. 
And it was Ivan who, in the end, would 
first encounter the dynamic Magic Mr. 
Turnip, who would so drastically change 
Unhappy Harry's entire life. 

For it came to pass that Ivan and Un- 
happy Harry were shopping for vege- 
tables in the A&P one day when a rather 
large and most unusual bulbous turnip 
fell from the rack and hit Ivan square on 
his canine cranium. Ivan immediately 
let out an angry "woof" and clenched 
the bulbous turnip between his teeth. 
Suddenly, almost as if by magic or over- 
dubbing, the turnip yelled, "Put me 
down, you hairy oaf!!!" For this was no 
ordinary turnip, but the Magical Mr. 
Turnip. Being just slightly less intelligent 
than Unhappy Harry, Ivan, who was not 
to be intimidated by a mere enchanted 
turnip, did not release his grip but rather 
closed his jaws and held them ever more 
tightly against Magic Mr. Turnip's bul- 
bous body. The titanic turnip then mum- 
bled, "Aw right, Jack, now you've had 
it!!!", and in a blinding flash, exploded 
with the roar of six rabid alligators at- 
tacking a vacuum cleaner. When the 
smoke cleared, Ivan lay in a pool of his 
own blood on the market floor, covered 
with canned tomatoes, his head impaled 
on the steer horn above the meat coun- 
ter, dripping blood and liquified cerebral 
tissue on the pork loins. All of the people 
in the store were immediately horror- 



stricken and fled from the building, 
aghast at the destruction of the seventy- 
two Iceberg lettuce heads that had been 
lost in the holocaust. All, however, ex- 
cept for Unhappy Harry. He lay writhing 
on the floor, laughing hysterically, gasp- 
ing crazed epithets about mangy Rus- 
sian Wolfhounds and generally squashing 
eight bunches of bananas which landed 
on the floor near him. For, lo and be- 
hold, a piece of shrapnel from the stu- 
pendously bulbous body of Magic Mr. 
Turnip had been blasted up Unhappy 
Harry's left nostril and had imbedded 
itself in his very brain!!! And now, the 
benign but crazed spirit of Magic Mr. 
Turnip had captured Unhappy Harry's 
brain cells and transformed him into 
Happy Harry, man of the world, general 
stud guy, and a great forth in canasta 
or cribbage. 

Happy Harry soon erased all memor- 
ies of his former life. He sold his children 
to the Barnum and Baily Circus! He did 
some very nasty things to his wife at 
night when she thought he was bowling!! 
He was fired from his job with the 
F.B.I, for taking illicit pictures of Mr. 
Hoover and the Vice President at a 
Quality Courts motel outside Frederick, 
Maryland and selling them to Midnight 
and the National Enquirer!!! His hair 
grew inordinately long and quite notice- 
ably curly, he began putting on body 
paint instead of after-shave in the morn- 
ing, and took to wearing beads, feath- 
ers, jean bell-bottoms, and dirty sneakers. 
He bought a 1938 DeSoto, an electric 
toothbrush for his girlfriend from H.S. 
144, and a Marshall amp through which 
to play his electric ukelele. He bought a 
Rhesus Monkee named Mastigophoria 
and set the prim primate on his mail- 
man, who died two hours later with 
toothmarks on his spinal column. Happy 
Harry's neighbor thought that he was 
really out to lunch, but Happy Harry 
just giggled and took a long drag on his 
hookah pipe filled with banana peel resi- 
due and a slightly used penny balloon. 
Yes, Happy Harry was, for all practical 
purposes, totally zonked. Magic Mr. Tur- 
nip had done his work, and Harry was 
happy at last. Alas, the end for Happy 
Harry came all too soon. 

On the tragic day in question, Happy 
Harry was showering with his landlady 
Hilda. In a fit of passion, Hilda tickled 
his nose with a pink suma brush. In two 
shakes of a lamb's tail, Happy Harry 
sneezed viciously. The all-important frag- 
ment of Magic Mr. Turnip flew out the 
window, where it was intercepted in 
mid-air and gobbled down by a passing 
vulture. Happy Harry screamed and ran 
down his spiral staircase and out into the 
street, clad only in his Donald Duck in- 
ner tube and his long, wet hair. He ran 
for miles, in search of the vulture, up to 
the Washington Monument, the Capitol, 
the White House, around to Union Sta- 




tion, and then east until he came to Ro- 
bert F. Kennedy Stadium. He ran onto 
the astroturf and across the Senators in- 
field, where he was beaned to death by 
Denny McLain. His ex-wife buried him 
in the back yard of his Georgetown pad 
two days later, marking the grave with a 
gold-plated baseball and his hookah pipe. 
Hilda sold his Donald Duck inner tube 
to the Smithsonian Institute for a bus 
ticket to Cleveland, to visit her sick 
husband Prince Rupert, owner of Prince 
Rupert's Hospital, Laundry, and Grill. 
Her behavior recently has been most un- 
usual. 

Two days after Happy Harry's death, 
a vulture, laughing hysterically, totally 
destroyed a Boeing 747 in flight. Sur- 
vivors reported that the vulture was 
wearing beads and sunglasses and clutch- 
ing a banana peel in its beak. 

Thus, the moral of the story is: Don't, 
mess with turnips if you work for the 
F.B.I.!!!!!!!

THE ARTS IN REVIEW 



Life Is Beautiful At the CABARET 



Pictured above is Jimmie Andreas Spheeris who will be appearing with the

,n the James Taylor tradition. 



by Cathy Mason 

It is always difficult to control and 
maintain the tone and forward propul- 
sion of a serious play, especially when 
atmosphere is so important a component 
as it is in Cabaret, a play of atmosphere 
rather than occurences. The action, of 
course, lends to the tragic tone, the rise 
of Nazism and the collapse of human 
relationships being serious affairs, but 
the special angle of this play is the 
cabaret as a atmosphere-evoking device. 
It is the juxtaposition of the frivolous, 
cynical, nihilistic, doomed world of the 
cabaret with the serious events outside 
which accounts for the special quality 
of Cabaret. And as I was starting to say, 
atmosphere is one of the most difficult 
things to sustain in a dramatic produc- 
tion. Not only must the actors be aware 
of it and strive for it, but the pacing, 
sets, direction, music, everything must 
be just right. To attain this with only 
a short time for production, rehearsals, 
etc. is clearly impossible, but this pro- 
duction made a good shot at it. Its 
strongest point was the individual per- 
formances, but the other aspects of pro- 
duction were not clearly deficient. A bit 
more could have been done with the 
sets, which were rather bare for a glitter- 
ing nightclub. If this production did not 
quite hit the mark in creating and sus- 
taining the atmosphere necessary to the 
point of the play, the cause was probably 
some indefinable lack which only more 
time or a professional group could 
rectify. 

The atmosphere was the desperate, 
failed world of defeated Germany, star- 
vation, rampant inflation, a sense of 
failure and the concomitant desire to 
forget one's troubles in drink and the 
forced gaiety of the cabaret. The out- 
rageous entertainments in the nightclubs, 
the blatant, but rather perverted appeal 
to sex, the nihilism and cynicism in the 
face of suffering and defeat all meet in 
the person of the emcee. His unreal 
caricature of a face, his curious sexless- 
ness, his appeals to come in away from 
harsh reality to where everything is 
beautiful, his mindless gaiety and clown- 
ish leers, his frenetic, almost hysterical 
performances all seem to sum up an 
age. 

On the other hand tremendous forces 
are building up and being unleashed in 
Germany at this time-shame of defeat, 
anger at Germany's treatment by the 
victorious Allies, the feeling of being 
an underdog and the desire to win back 
Germany's lost prestige in the world 
order, the helplessness in the face of 
economic collapse, and the great search 
for scapegoats. 

I will just enumerate a few points 
which struck me about individual per- 
formances, making no attempt to ac- 
claim everyone deserving of it. I thought 
Gary Weber r was excellent in the role of 
the emcee with his brilliant, vacant 
smile and grotesque hilarity. He seemed 
a grinning Charon guiding lost souls to 
his particular Hell. I also admired Joanne 
Sockle's portrayal of the spiritual weari-

ness of Frau Schneider. She also sensi- 
tively handled the moments reminiscent 
of a more elegant and courtly life in the 
scenes with Herr Schultz. Joe Gargiulo as 
Schultz was basically sound with per- 
haps a little too much of the fall guy, 
schlemiel stereotype. Judging from the 
song about the little Meeskite, however, 
this characteristic may already have been 
written into the part. If so it is a 
weakness. We certainly need no help in 
pitying and sympathizing with a man in 
Herr Schultz's position, and the bathetic 
schlemiel of the Jewish comedians does 
not add to the attempt in Cabaret to- 
ward a serious, even tragic tone. 



RECORDS 



by Ben Neideigh 

For the final review of the 70-71 
term I have chosen the record which, to 
me, epitomizes the tastes in music which 
I have developed through the year. I 
started the year pretty heavily into coun- 
try-rock, and , although I have changed 
my ideas concerning this genre consider- 
ably, I still like the music being made 
in this area. I have, however, also "got- 
ten into," as it were, a rock genre which 
few people know of, namely the key- 
board trio. This is a typically English 
genre, and in fact the only major groups 
of this nature currently performing are 
British. The concept was introducted by 
Brian Auger and the Trinity in 1967, 



and later adopted by such notable groups 
as Soft Machine, Quattermass, Rare Bird, 
(actually an "all-keyboard" quartet), and 
on a slightly higher echelon, The Nice 
and their off-shoot, Emerson, Lake, and 
Palmer. In this genre, the group is based 
around either organ or piano, and that 
instrument takes the majority of the 
leads. This instrument is backed by bass 
guitar and drums. In this instance, the 
lead guitar, focal point for most other 
groups, is effectively eliminated, thus 
removing the shrill, grating shriek com- 
mon to guitar-based bands and offering 
the organist full control of the tight, 
unified sounds keyboard trios display 
as their characteristic. Often present are 
intricate, jazz-influenced passages, or 
even classically-inspired riffs that demon- 
strate the virtuosity of the keyboard 
player quite definitively. I have chosen 
to review the newest and, to me, best 
album of this genre. I hope you will 
agree with my choice. 

Elegy, by the Nice(Mercury SR-61324) 
Perhaps, this is an unrepresentative album 
of this genre, because it was recorded 
over a year ago, prior to the demise of 
the Nice(that act of God that spawned 
Emerson, Lake,- and Palmer). It is, how- 
ever, a highly technical, brilliantly exe- 
cuted musical feast, much more unified 
than Emerson, Lake, and Palmer's sub- 
sequently released album and display- 
ing a quality which Emerson and com- 
pany use only sparingly: sublety. Emer- 
son was keyboard artist for the Nice 
during their all-too-brief life span as well, 
but during that time, it seems, he was 
more concerned with the use of tightly- 
stated linear riffs, classical interpolations, 
and jazz influences than with his new 
band, in which he seems content to 
spew forth insanely complex blocks of 
powerful, earth-shaking chords in a neo- 
Mussorgsky-style of attack. Mussorgsky, 
in fact, seems to have replaced Bach 
and Sibelius as Keith Emerson's prime 
influence of late, and it is thus fairly 
certain that, just as "Intermezzo from 
the Karelia Suite," in a jazz-rock trans- 
mographication, became a major Nice

trademark, "Pictures At An Exhibition," 
in typical space-rock transmographica- 
tion, promises to be a big Emerson, Lake, 
and Palmer trademark. Perhaps Keith is 
becoming even more brash, if that is pos- 
sible, with age. His organ-stabbing es- 
capades are famous everywhere he has 
appeared, and his ability to stretch the 
limits of even the most basic Hammond 
organ beyond belief is well-documented 
fact. For all his flamboyance, however, 
Emerson is above all a master of the 
keyboard, and even his orgiastic stage 
behavior cannot shroud the fact that be- 
neath the rage that he shows the audi- 
ence is a complete musical genius. His 
recent substitution of sublety for sheer 
brute force is, in some respects, regret- 
table, but is not invalid as it is a part of 
the development of Emerson's music 
rather than(as is often the case with 
newly-crowned rock kings) Emerson's 
ego. 

Elegy is a beautiful exhibition of all 
that Emerson is, however, and all that 
the Nice was. There are four cuts on the 
album, two done in the studio and two 
done live. If any album they recorded 
has a chance of removing the obscurity 
that shrouds the group, this one does. 
Emerson streaks through the album's 
first cut, Tim Hardin's "Hang on to a 
Dream," first heard on the album Nice 
and done live at the Fillmore East for 
this recording. This version is roughly 
twice as long as the original and displays 
an excellent jazz interplay between Em- 
erson, on Piano, and Brian Davison, the 
sadly unsung drummer, that builds be- 
tween the extremities of the numbers 
into sheer madness constructed of sev- 
enths and ninths, pure improvisation in 
its ultimate form. Dylan's "My Back 
Pages" is the second cut. Done in the 
studio, it is a brillant example of this 
same interplay, aided this time by Lee 
Jackson's wheezy, almost orgasmic vo- 
cals, which suit the despairing, fleeing 
version of this number perfectly. It's 
not Dylan as we know Dylan, but then 
why should it be? The Nice rank as 
rock's all-time great interpreters of other 
artists' music(B.S.&T. freaks take note). 
Side two opens with Tchaikovsky's 
"Third Movement, Pathetique Sym- 
phony." This is a masterful interpola- 
tion of Peter T's most beautiful theme 
into organ-based jazz rock. It is done 
with a confidence uncommon to most 
rock groups doing their own, lesser ma- 
terial. A studio work, it is a good ex- 
ample of the combination achieveable 
with the proper mixture of three great 
musicians, drums, bass, and a Hammond 
C-series organ. Davison's excellent drum 
"cadenza" at the end of this number is 
perfect, well timed as well as beauti- 
fully executed. Well done of Five Bridges 
with orchestra, "Pathetique" is even bet- 
ter here without. Finally, the album 
closes with the Nice'es most master- 
ful, towering number, "America," the 
L. Bernstein-S. Sondheim classic from 
West Side Story. Emerson rages through 
this number, recorded at the Fillmore, 
wrenching from his Hammond an en- 
tire Air Force of destruction in the 
form of shattered, distorted tones as he 
blasts the notes from the Leslie speakers 
with a vengeance representative of the 
sickness his interpretation portrays. It is 
a polluted, dying America that the Nice 
shows the listeners, an America of terror. 
"America" was the high point of the 
first side of the Nice'es second album, 
Ars Longa Vita Brevis, and is the high 
point of Elegy as well. 

Thus we have the ultimate achieve- 
ment of the Nice, an album well worth 
the five dollars that it costs with tax 
and everything added. It won't sell, 
simply because the listeners of today 
want the likes of Grand Funk and

The James Gang 

In other news, the James Gang, re- 
cording artists for ABC Records, will 
invade Annville May 21 for a concert 
in Lynch Gym. They are a trio, based 
around multi-instrumentalist Joe Walsh 
on guitar, keyboards, and other sundries. 
They are one of the better hard groups 
in the U.S. today and well worth the 
two bucks a head admission. They have 
three albums on the market, the newest 
of which is called Thirds. Appearing 
with them will be soloist Jimmie Spheer- 
is, who, according to the P.R. I have 
available, plays the piano and sings in a 
quasi -James Taylor style. I don't know 
anything else about him, but suffice it 
to say he's second on the bill. Again, 
on-campus tickets are two dollars a peice 
(student rate). I hope to see a good 
turn-out. 

GRIDDERS GET 
NEW COACH 

Louis A. Sorrentino was named as 
the new football coach, effective this 
coming fall. 

In making the announcement, Dr. 
Sample indicated that Mr. Sorrentino 
will carry the title of assistant professor 
of physical education and will also have 
additional related responsibilities in phy- 
sical education and athletics. These 
duties are still to be determined. 

The new coach will replace William 
McHenry who will become director of 
athletics at Washington and Lee Univer- 
sity, Lexington, Virginia, on July 1. 

Sorrentino is currently head football 
coach at Woodrow Wilson High School, 
Bristol Township, Pa., and serves as an 
administrative teacher in that school sy- 
stem's Opportunity School, geared for 
13 to 15-year-old boys who have school 
adjustment difficulties. He has held the 
coaching reins for the past ten years, the 
present teaching responsibility for three 
years. 

The new LVC grid leader, a 1954 
alumnus, enrolled at Lebanon Valley 
after an outstanding secondary school 
career at Sharon Hill High School. And 
he preceeded to star in three sports for 
the flying Dutchmen, quarterbacking 
the football team, playing guard position 
on the potent cage team of his era, and 
starring as a shortstop and pitcher for 
the diamond squad. In all, he earned 
12 varsity letters, only the third man to 
accomplish the feat at Lebanon Valley 
as of that time. 

Following graduation in 1954, Sor- 
rentino entered the service and played 
and coached football at Fort Meade, 
Maryland, during two seasons. 

A pact with the National Football 
League's Philadelphia Eagles followed 
but, while with the pros during their 
1956 summer preparation, Sorrentino 
accepted a coaching position at Sham- 
okin Area High School. 

He remained at Shamokin for five 
years, teaching social studies as well as 
coaching football and basketball. His 
grid record was 38-16-2, including one 
undefeated season marred only by a 
tie. 

In 1961, Sorrentino was chosen from 
among 50 applicants to head the foot- 
ball team at Woodrow Wilson High 
School. He also taught in the social 
studies area for the first seVerryears at 
the Bucks County school prior to his 
present position at the Opportunity 
School. 

While at Wilson, Sorrentino shared 
one Section 1, Lower Bucks League 
title in 1966, and finished runner-up 
four times. In 1970 Wilson finished with 
a 9-1-1 record and second place in the 
conference. His over-all record at Wilson 
is 56 wins, 38 losses and 7 ties.

One aspect of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege now under consideration as part of 
the decennial Middle State Study is a 
change in the academic calendar. An 
ad hoc subcommittee of the Academic 
Life Committee has drawn up two op- 
tions, both based on the same frame- 
work of the present calendar, but pushed 
back two weeks and one week. 

Dr. Love, committee member, dis- 
cussed the changes with the faculty this 
week. Dr. Shay, responsible for drawing 
up past calendars, indicated that the

Valley's defense in the form of Tom Corbett and Tony 
Calabrese slow down the opponent's advance in last month's 
match against Muhlenberg. 

conditional changes must be made be- 



fore the summer, otherwise the sched- 
uling of events for 1972-72 would fol- 
low the present framework. 
One of the major reasons for the 
change is the feeling that a vacation 
should be just that and not a work 
period before exams. 

Any questions regarding the proposed 
change in calendar can be answered by 
committee members Marty Hauserman, 
Cherry Woodburn, Dr. Love, and Dr. 
Shay. -Martin Hauserman
